Do your homework...Diachi said:[quote author=Spyderz20x6 link=1231476210/60#61 date=1231795545][quote author=Tech_Junkie link=1231476210/40#48 date=1231731837][quote author=wannaburn link=1231476210/40#40 date=1231697065]Even at 250ma, I cant think of any diodes that will light a smoke. Definately one of the trickiest builds to ever grace the pages here. I think its time to find my old Zippo
Did someone forget to mention that green lasers do not use green diodes, as most noobs think? :
A green laser is DPSS, meaning it has to use a pump diode to get green light. It is a difficult process, where many crystals are required.
You have to use at least a 1 WATT IR diode to get 200mW of green.
That is using the highest efficiency crystals :
Now tell me, how much current does a 1 Watt c-mount require? :
YOU sir, are the one who needs to do his homework.[/quote]
With some skillz you can get 300mW from a 1W pump [/quote]
300mW of what? Green or IR?
If green, then you would need some beefy crystals
