You end up having a high power red, then you want a high power green to go with it, then you get a dichro to make yellow, then you want to try the real yellow, then you want to add blue and BluRay, then you want more burning power, then you hear about how powerful IR lasers are... etc etc
03 NIR diode lasers (including VCSELs)
03 red HeNe lasers
43 red diode lasers
02 yellow DPSS lasers
01 green HeNe laser
21 green DPSS lasers
02 blue DPSS lasers
01 argon ion laser
02 Blu-ray (violet) diode lasers
78 lasers total. And this doesn't count lasers which are not on my website at all.
I did not count any of the lasers that were loaned to me; if I did there would be 86 lasers total.
Most of the lasers I evaluate on my website were sent by manufacturers & retailers, but I did buy some of them, like the two blue DPSS lasers. In both cases, they were paid for with money from advertisers who's banners came up for renewal and who pay by the year...there's no way in hades I'd be able to purchase them otherwise.
