hello everybody, my name is David!

I have a question about handheld lasers, I have become interested in the handheld lasers and would like to know if it is necessary to go to a school to learn and understand about how they work or can an average person understand how they work without any formal training?

thank you!

Ditto what Encap said, welcome and enjoy. It's a great place to learn. But warning lasers are addictive. :)

thank you friends, I don't own one yet because I'd like to learn about them so I can make a informed decision on purchasing one of my own.

thanks!

Welcome to LPF David! :beer:

It looks like Encap and the others have you headed in the right direction.
The only thing I'd add is to be sure and use the proper safety glasses/goggles for any lasers with output >5mW.

Welcome to the forum David. :) Can I suggest adding your location to your profile, it helps us later on.
It is good to see you are willing to learn, you can learn a lot here.
As for knowing what goes on inside those lasers, you don't need to go to school to learn. You just need to know how to use a search engine and do some research. ;)
This forum has its very own search bar which allows you to discover a lot. But feel free to ask questions. :beer:

Welcome to the Forum...

I'm not quite sure... Is there no Google
available in Luxembourg.. :thinking:

Logic dictates that that would be the 1st
place someone would go for any type of
Information.
I know I do....

Enjoy your stay.
