Hay dudes.
I got given an apparently high power laser diode from my Dad.
I can't wait to start messing around with it. (responsibly of course ;))

I have one problem however. The diode has no documentation or model number.
I thought I should take some pictures and show them to some laser enthusiasts for help.
Which forum section should I post them to?

Thanks guys

EDIT: Added photos and a bit more data. Sorry for the bad quality.
The attached image shows side view, lens end and the rear end.

The lens appears to have a blue tint to it.
There are 4 legs on the back.
There is also a number written on the back: 0146105
I think it's power may be 0.5 Watts

You could post them in general lasers or you could just post them in this topic if you want. Do you know what power level it is?

Modified my post to show a pic and some more info.
I have tried googling the number written on the back but to no avail. :'(

I'm guessing that thing is infrared, amm I right? If that is a bare diode, be extrememly careful as a tiny bit of static will kill it.

I have no idea if it is infrared or not or if it is a bare diode. I was hoping to get some identifying tips here.

I'm pretty sure that is infrared because it is .5W(That's a heck of a lot of power). But it looks like a bare diode with some lens in front of it. Do you know where your dad got it at or what he got it from?
