Anyone know if I can put the 473nm module into a handheld build? If so, I might pick this up I've been casually looking for a 473nm, but mostly in portable form - I haven't messed with lab-style lasers much, so no idea how they mount the laser module and such, what the input power is, etc.
In a word: no.
I have one of the 532nm heads, this is what the inside looks like
I have a 473 and I expect it will look the same. Typically in lab setups you won't see everything compact like you do in handhelds.
Edit: to clarify, I had these pics handy. I'm away from where the 473 is until the weekend, I would have shown that instead. 99.9% sure it will be the same optical setup as the green.
