Curious, if one was to spread a SMALL amount of darker colored flammable/combustible powder into the air, i.e. cocoa powder, copier toner (not certain as to copier tonar's flammability, however I assume it's mostly carbon so it stands to reason that it should burn) I wonder if the powder igniting in the laser beam would be visible or not. Granted a large amount of powder in the air would ignite and spread, and fireball, so a larger amount would be rather dangerous. Just curious if anyone has tried anything like this. Probably 2 weeks out or so from ordering either parts or a whole module for my first higher powered laser, so I can't yet experiment or test.
