I totally agree with you.Very impressive. And all for the low low price of 1/10000th of what a 15 watt blue laser cost 20 years ago. Excelsior!
I'm sure this won't be cheap. But I've been playing with lasers long enough to know just how much 'cheap' has been redefined over the last couple decades.
Agree these newer diodes are way more efficient than 7W diodes. Their nominal volatge is also lower than other diodes.Waste heat will be less than just 2 of our usual 7W diodes as we drive them and we manage the heat from 14, 20, 24 tightly packed diode arrays, the waste heat from these will not be an issue.
