I'm pretty sure we will have dioides that can be pushed to 488nm or near it soon.

Not so long ago, we didn't have a direct green, now we do. The amount of new wavelengths available to us is since I joined the hobby is amazing. Hopefully Alex is correct and we won't have to wait too long.

so can somebody explain to me how one pushes a diode to a different wavelength? ive heard of pushing diodes by milliwatts but pushing by nanometers is a whole new thing to me.

Same way. Increasing the current and/or temperature leads to higher wavelengths. Some diodes are more prone to shifting, others are more stable.

Please do not copy/paste other people's posts. You've done this twice with only two posts! Troll or spammer :tsk:

488nm diodes already exists i have 1 diode i was planing to do a build and always end up not doing it i talked to DTR to send him the diode to solder the driver since i was shaking holding the diode
and DTR was honest and told me its too much liability. it would be amazing if the prices could fall down on the 488nm' diodes :pop:
:lasergun:
the 473nm color is amazing

If i leave my 473nm labby on which is a 10mw but peaks at 34mw and turn off all the lights in my room things start to get a green hue to the blue. I'm convinced 473 hits your green cones just like 532 looks slightly yellow after awhile and then you see that yellow vs a 520nm I theorized this before I got a 520 diode. I guess real blue is 455-465nm. But yeah 473 is still alot closer to real blue than a 445 which has that weird Blue but violet tint.
