So i finally got around to putting my 50mW tunable aixiz laser in an enclosure. I didn't want to spend money on buying one so i used parts that i had laying around. The fan,switch and power cord came from a ps2. The fan grill is from an old speaker. The toggle switch,led and box came from another project. The copper fittings were from a plumbing project. Now a lil info on the laser when i first got it it was putting out 62mW then i tweaked the pot a little bit and got 101mW and stayed there and didn't move. The beam is very nice and tight it doesn't mode hop at all. When you fire it up it starts at about 71mW and climbs to 101mW in about one minute. The fan keeps it pretty cool it started out at room temp which was 77° and climbs to about 88° and stayed that temp for my 15 min test run. Now for some pics.
