I have always been under the impression that most of the heat comes off the laser diode comes off the back of the diode and the case lead. If this is true, using my thermal, electrically isolated epoxy from Arctic Silver (not the conductive type) should help remove the heat from the Aixiz lens holder/heatsink. Anyone test this theory yet, with some sort of thermal epoxy? I always heat shrink the pos/neg leads on the laser diode anyway, use 28g Teflon wire, so there is plenty of room for a good area of compound... I will try it since I have a build this week to finish. Ideas?
