LASERWAVE 200mw 473nm LAB LASER REVIEW

Well thanks to Bridge at LASERWAVE.COM http://www.laser-wave.com/English/ I've had the pleasure of reviewing their 200mw 473nm Lab Laser, the same unit the Daedal reviewed except 200mw.
These retail at approx 1250 euros for LASERWAVE. Firstly the package came well protected in heavy duty foam packing to protect the laser and after opening it I read the instructions that came with it.
It's powered by 110v-250v so all I had to do was use my universal travel adapter to fire this beauty up :cool:
Once I fired it up the beam looked very stable to the eye no signs of mode hopping whatsoever :) And WOW this is a very beautiful color and at 200mw it's very very bright too, after playing around for a while I shut it down so I could start it from cold and do a power reading on my Andover LPM-1 laser power meter which I will post the Graph below in this thread. The laser started up at 150-164mw and then quickly rose to above 200mw. It peaked at 220.4mw throughout a 4 hour test, the laser never went below 160mw, and once it had warmed up it stayed at 200mw most of the way.

DIVERGENCE
I used pseudo's divergence calculator to do the measurement and the result was this: 1.2303143398648 mRd so rounding it off 1.2 mRd :cool:
Now for the Laser show guys here you are gonna love this piece of kit and want one for your collection :p I know for the rest of us then 200mw of BLUE is enough to make use a little weak at the knees :D
Now I'm no scientist but I'm sure that physics labs would make very good use of this fine piece of kit and at the price they ask for it, you just can't go wrong :) :cool:

Lab lasers are just so sweet as you can leave them running bouncing the beam off mirrors etc for ages ;) Unlike portable lasers which get hot or are dictated by batteries and duty cycles :D Once you switch it on you can play to your hearts content with all the experiments you can think of :cool:
