I've been hunting about this blog for a year or so and have learned a great deal re: Blue:violet lasers. I own a large surplus electronics store, specializing in electronic surplus, computers, surveillance equipment / installation. I have been building lasers and importing them since the 670nm/1-5mW was the best and newest devices in town (not to mention, expensive) I have worked at a number of optical R&D companies, love to tinker with lasers and optics. I'm looking forward to learning more and hopefully being helpful to others.

The avatar is my first attempt to make a white light laser. Problem was my small digital camera blocked the deep blue/violet. I have more photos of the same experiment. It did kind of work..

Welcome to the forum.
I live right around the corner from you, Lakeland.
I'll have to check out your site. It would be great to receive shipped items in 1-2 days.

We're always happy to have visitors. We have 20,000 sq/ft of stuff. Maybe we'll start selling laser parts and assemblies (OEM) I can not deal with FDA / CDRH anymore, too much of a hassle. We have a good deal of great machinists here too.
