So I know that there are lighting matches and cutting tape and stuff like that but is that the only thing these high power lasers can do? For Example are these things even close to being able to burn hair or something? Because i have only seen videos or pictures of lighting macthes or popping balloones or cutting tape but why are people not trying to like burn hair or something idk.

IF anyone has tried something like this please post

The Collimation isn't good enough to put a dot on a piece of hair. The dot is just too big.

I tried to light a candle today and it didn't work because the full dot didn't go on the wick.

I have burned holes in anything black, or dark red - have a bag of cat treats out in the garage I pointed at, and smoke a hole clean through it FAST. I have inscribed dark plastic items - popped tons of balloons, even melted a red-hot candy with it ! Besides burning things, lots of different lighting effects can be done, too.

sniper, i used a blue laser to punch a .6 mm hole through a 6 carat vvs red diamond. then i inserted a small red diode into the hole and the diamond now glows like a star!

i would IMAGINE that it must be mega watts in order to have created the scenario i described. do you know of any other lasers that could duplicate the event i described?

Good hyopthesis - BUT - if the beam terminated inside the diamond, it would shine back into the diode, and most likely burn it up - not too sure about the heat transfer issue, either - the diode may burn up from the built up heat first ! : ;D
