Hey guys! I recently noticed some cool looking 505nm diodesI have wanted to build a laser pointer for a while now, and when I came across this, I just had to do it! I already have two red 200mW pointers and a 405nm violet one (same power, also my first one), and so I have a bit of experience with lasers, but also Arduino and breadboard electronics in general (trying to build a modular synth). Since I don't really know what all the good things are to do to DIY a Laser, I thought what better place than here to discuss it. basically I just want to build a pointer with this diode, and I don't know how to do it, but have the skills to. where should I start?
