Yeah but you already know the quoted prices and they can only get higher from there, you just can't tell how high.

That does show something about Laserglow.
It's nice to see that more and more companies are stepping up their service to that of companies such as Laserglow.

That HAS to be the favorite out of all your lasers. Am I right? That's jaw-dropping.
I really like them all together...
That is, all switched on.
Pure laser porn ^^

I want to make a photo of all lasers switched on. (maybe tonight)

Thanks everyone else for the comments :) and glad i could help you with your laser addiction's ^^
Cheers sm..

For as costly as this is, I think that this particular laser is next "on my list". Now I just need to get 10x the laser money I currently have haha

Recieved the stickers today (Yes two of them)

Thanks again Event_Horizon :thanks:

Ohh and a question*
Do you guy's think there is a extention tube for this laser so you can use 2× cr123A ?



Cheers, Sm.

Glad the stickers made it to you!

There is no such extension tube. The laser is designed for a single 3.0V CR123a, if you put two of them in series you will almost certainly overload the driver board. Two in parallel is not recommended either because unless the batteries are voltage and resistance matched you can backfeed power from one into the other which may cause one or both to explode.

Nice Laser. Sucks they cost so much.
Yellow diode lasers are so much more expensive then for example red ones.
Lots of itty bitty parts, and they all need to be very carefully aligned by hand. If the polarisation is off , one or both crystals need to be turned.
With red diode lasers, you just slap in the diode and slap a lens in front of it.

BIG infrared laser diode that generates laser light at 808nm, this is fired into a crystal containing the rare-earth element neodymium.
This crystal takes the 808nm infrared laser light and lases at 1,064 and 1,342nm (yes, deeper in the infrared!). This laser light comes out of the NdYV04 (neodymium yttrium vanadium oxide) crystal and is then shot into a second crystal (containing potassium, titanium, & phosphorus, usually called KTP) that roughly doubles the frequency.

Or something like that :)

That's why they cost so much.

Cheers sm.
