hi my name is Vinny. i have always been interested in lasers and always wanted a nice green one but never wanted to pay as much as they sell for new.

the most powerful one i have had was a 10mw :-/ assy from aixiz.

i am also a electronics whore so whenever i see something on the street or in recycling i nab it to see if there is anything usefull in it.

i do have one question though.

i have like 2 or 3 laser diodes from computer cd drives. now i know you are supposed to have atleast burner diodes but would i still be able to make a laser from just a regular drive?

this site has a alot of info, gonna take a while to read.

Vinny,
welcome to LPF. There is a wealth of information to be found here if you are willing to look for it. The search function is adequate but limits you to only 25 results.

If you really get stuck and can not find what you need, someone will usually point you in the right direction... but be sure to do your homework first.

Good luck and have fun!
