You can get a 20 mile long beam just using a 532nm DPSS laser and a beam expander. You don't need multiple beams from a diode array.
I meant a white flashlight beam generated by a blue laser, like the Acebeam W30You can get a 20 mile long beam just using a 532nm DPSS laser and a beam expander. You don't need multiple beams from a diode array.
I ordered from apinex.com they were recommended to me by a friend that had ordered from them in the past for work.Yes, I use a similar kind of googles. Important is that they be not generic ebay stuff but purchased from a known manufacturer. Not cheap!
But if you are new to lasers I think that everyone here on LPF would recommend you to play with 1-5W lasers first before passing to NUBM31. Get used to constant current drivers, wearing googles etc. Otherwise you can burn the expensive thing or hurt yourself or someone else what could be even worse.
Oh, this was my 500th post!
Thank you for the link. If they are recommended by Styropyro they must work ;-) I ordered my pair from apinex as it was recommended by a friend who ordered for work previously. But I like options and the more recommendations the better. Definitely staying away from Amazon & eBay junk.Good laser safety glasses are important, you can spend a lot more on certified glasses or go with EaglePair brand which many here use, they are good quality at a good price, but don't trust the Chinese glasses from ebay and amazon.
You can get lasermake certain to get glasses that will attenuate the wavelength you will be working with.
To be absolutely honest, I'd love to install a "Phaser" on my Model S, it would definitely be set to "stun" , but at the same time, I don't want to go to jail.....What is it you actually plan on doing with it? If it's anything CNC orientated or anything that'll result in reflections I'd suggest looking at goggles rather than glasses. I have a pair of the eagle pair OD6+ glasses and find they let a lot of light past through the bridge of the nose and through the sides when cutting.
