Seems that new Sharp 1W 520nm, 3,5W / 5W 455nm, +2W 638nm multimode diodes are coming up!

Φ9mm Can Models:

3500mW 455nm GH04C03A9G
5000mW 455nm GH04C05A9G

1000mW 520nm GH05C01A9G
2100mW 638nm GH06C02A9G
2500mW 638nm GH06C02B9G


More @ Sharp Japan site >>




EDIT

This Ebay seller has 520nm ones

That is good news indeed, 40 bucks for 500+ mw isn't too bad (I say that when the 1 watt NDG7475's were 1,000 dollars each not too long ago).

Interesting that the ebay seller has them up as 500mw units and has a datasheet specifying them at .5W when Sharp has the same model # rated at 1W in their table.

I'm excited about the 5W 455nm and 2.5W 638nm units. I'm sure the 638's will have horrible divergence, but whatever, c-lenses.. at this point that's pretty much expected anyways.

If the beam divergence is what datasheet says its gonna be awesome :p

Yeese! Techhood wants double what the seller in the OP wants for that Sharp 520nm diode. Hopefully someone will do a review on these. I would like to get a new up to 1 watt 520nm diode for $40.00 if it pans out.

It's interesting, that same seller has what appear to be FAC corrected P73's, FAC USHIO 1W 638's, also FAC NUBM08's with an aftermarket can taking place of the gball (sort of like an N465 with a FAC). The prices are unreasonable, as in, unreasonably cheap. Got to get some of them, they look awesome.

Yes the NDG7475 data sheet lists average as 11 / 46 so 6.5 / 23 is about half.............but still has the one more aggressive axis........kinda makes the 03 with FAC look like the winner, hope more are on the way.

I'm curious about the fac lens. Is it coming with some kind of attachment or is it built in to the diode itself?

The green is listed as 600mW. Since the 1.6W blues couldn't be pushed hard I imagine these can't either.

Also based on the model#, they left room for higher power variants
