:pop: any offers? :D

I'm kinda surprised nobody has jumped on this yet!
If I could come up with the cash, I would. But we just started on a 75 gallon aquarium setup, so kinda low on funds right now.
Hap, do you know what diode is used for your 532? I'm wondering with it being so overspec, if it's being driven too hard?

Chris, 532s don't use diodes, and CNI never discloses which components they use. Typically when 532s are overspec it is because of better than expected crystal efficiency.

Man, wish I saw this thread earlier. That 532nm though...

Right on the edge of the hobby budget too. :undecided:

Thanks Rivem!

I wouldn't mind letting it go for a little lower price, but wouldn't go below $170. I mean were talking 470mW's of 532 for $170 now. Unheard of ;)

That's not rue. They use an 808nm pump diode and it can be over driven. When I first saw the question, I thought it was pertinent. I still do, though the answer may never be known.

Edit; Alex, I'm very tempted myself, but am going to wait as I just spent a lot for a spectrometer and several new diodes and drivers. It's time to service my car now, also.

:eek:Why must you tempt me so?!

I'll think about it this weekend after the bills are paid.

Alex, what kind of LMP did you use to check the power of the 532nm with? I'm still temped and need to know a little more before I think about pulling the trigger.

Couldn't you have had this sale in a month when my truck is finally paid off? :p

Should have been paying attention, would have taken that 450 and probably the Eagle Pair for blue/green too... Oh well!
