Ah wish I could but I'm on the east coast. Didn't you give Zach Collins a ride at one point? I think he hold me about it
639 and 607nm dpss! are they Pr:YLF based dpss? I wonder what the tunable one usesView attachment 74113View attachment 74112
What a treat to get to meet more LPF members, and my eyes felt blessed by the opportunities to experience more unique wavelengths than I had ever seen in a single day. Philip is a brilliant man and DPSS laser builder, and the real deal at industry leading efficiency DPSS laser building, and rare wavelength laser building. I dabble in power electronics, and I was very impressed with his 6chanel laser driver he calls COLORdrive 6, as well as the 1.5kW bidirectional TEC controllers that were as small as I have ever seen for low ripple current bi-directional supplies.
Seeing the new wavelengths like 607nm was worth the drive from LA up to SF by itself if even there was no photonics show. My camera's RGB sensor and your computer screen you're viewing on can only try to simulate the 607nm experience. Its a beautiful mid color that's much warmer than 594nm, but more golden orange fire-like sparkle than any red you've ever seen before.

Nobody else at the show was offering his range of wavelengths. I didn't see any tunable reds in his range either.639 and 607nm dpss! are they Pr:YLF based dpss? I wonder what the tunable one uses
Im working on $700-800 Pr:ylf 607nm modulesNobody else at the show was offering his range of wavelengths. I didn't see any tunable reds in his range either.
607nm is one of the most rare laser wavelengths I've ever seen created anywhere. His prices are fair too, Im going to buy one when I recover from wedding expenses.
I recommend if you u guys are in California to make it out to the show for at least a day. You'll see things you've never seen and learn new applications with light you never imagined possible.
