Actually you'd only need OD4 goggles to reduce a direct hit to 1mW.

Wish they made 555nm DPSS..... D:
Because there is a HUGE difference between 555nm and 556nm ;D

In fact, they'd probably be the same thing... considering it shifts with temperature, right? Or is that just diodes?

Correct, wouldn't the temperature shift also lower the output due to the pump "pumping" 805nm-811nm?

I would want a certificate valid for one laser of choice at OEM Laser Systems :D, just thinking of 500mW+ of 593nm and 473nm makes me laugh.

I wish they had a hand-held battery powered (would have to be some kind of exotic diode, I'd imagine) laser putting out a 488nm beam - at at least 50mw! I swear that has to be my favorite laser color - but I'd really love to be able to make it fit into a pen laser.

I would go for a 10 WATT 556nm the size of the RPL ;D With a beam diameter of 0.5mm and a <1mrad This could be realistic but some time in the future... I would also need something like 10 OD goggles :eek: And the casing made of Titanium! With an infinite duty cycle (like the SPYDER II) And some sort of super batteries that use nuclear fission and last >10 years!
You stole my dream :eek:
The moment I saw this thread I thought "A 556nm from CNI".. :D

I'd prob go with an 532nm RPL (the biggest I could get) - Don't get me wrong,I love my Herc but it IS a bit unwieldy and not quite as portable as the RPL's. ....

THIS. I love 488nm :D and they DO make 488nm DPSS :eek: but sadly not in portables :(

I just read an article where they talked about having developed up to 600mW 488nm DPSS. I think it was in Germany.. now if we could just fit that into a torch :D
