So would it be as simple as attaching a beta barium borate crystal to the end of THIS LASER to make it an 532nm laser?

I understand it will take some adjusting and time.
But I'd rather spend time messing with crystals than spending $800
HERE is a video that inspired my idea

My questions:
Would it have horrible divergence?
Would it lose alot of power? (mW output)
Thanks~!

You can read up on what is required to change 800nm
to 532nm on the forum or just doing a Google search.

It takes 2 crystals to do that and they must be able to
take the power of the Pump Diode.

Depending on the efficiency of the crystal pair and heat
sinking you mat get from 15% to 30% of the Pump Diode's
power turning into 532nm...
