having seen the 1watt kvant i was very impressed by the size. so i thought ummm wonder how hard that would be to do the same??

now kvants measures 264 x 175 x 180 mm -

1W full color SPECTRUM - Smaller and Faster! - laserShow.sk KVANT ltd.

mine measures 220x170x90mm and by my maths that = half the size

power -

2x 215mw 405nm diodes
2x 275mw 650nm diodes
1x 50mw green module

so total power before optics will be 1030mw

I can't wait to see this running. I'm gonna try to save up for a scanner, I'll probably need a couple of those insulating heatsinks also. Very nice!

Will you continue updating this thread with pictures, or must I go to PL? :D

I think comparing it to the one in the link is a bit edgy though - that states a whopping 500 mW of 445 nm blue. I wonder if its a 445 nm diode though, or a 457/473 DPSS, though both seem incredibly powerful.

He could turn it on - but nothing would happen. It's not finished.
yeah, I gathered that from seeing the empty modules :D
Ok, Finish it...Then turn it on! With the cover off of course.

It's a 445nm 500mW blue diode, they come in 1W flavor too :D

Make sure you isolate that green from the aluminum with a sheet of mica or whatever.

I'm also interested to see how well that green modulates if you are using an analog driver with it. Reason being that I have a few of those. One modulates great. One is terrible. I haven't even fired up the third one, yet.

I'm building a RGV. Will I have to isolate my green also? It's the 100mW one from o-like. Sorry for the threadjack andy.

MM --- In my RGB build, I use neg chassis ground and had to isolate the green module from chassis ground. That's how it works. I used a thin strip of mylar, thermal grease and nylon screws.

Action pics! Turn it on man.
easy tiger... when its finished ill get some action pics ;)

im getting a delivery of 10 6x 405nm diodes tuesday.

I can't wait to see this running. I'm gonna try to save up for a scanner, I'll probably need a couple of those insulating heatsinks also. Very nice!
not a problem let me know. ill be seeling this as soon as its made so that i can work on a better model. better scanners and 2.5-3watt

I'm curious to see how you combine the beams. I've never seen it done like that before.
its very simple just bounce the top beam down to meet the green with the dichro at 45 degrees still

i will update this thread dont worry

im comparing it size wise only, kvant use cambridge scanners and 445 blue. and yes it is a 445nm diode not dpss.

long time no speak gary hows it going? yep isolating is sorted already ;)
not tested the modulation yet so will keep you posted.
