Hi. I'm just posting a URL for a micro blower that could be used for cooling high watt laser diodes. Murata Fans & Blowers | Mouser I got this from a friend. I'm going to try using this on a 1-watt blue laser diode. It's very small, but puts out a LOT of air! yet it's about 1"X1"X1/8" in size. It uses very little power unlike more conventional means. See what you think.

Go for it. You may be on to something.
Or at least something that someone hasn't done before.
Which is always cool in my book.
Take pictures! :)

Ok. I was impressed with it's features shown in these videos.
Demonstration movies of Microblowers | Micromechatronics | Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. I've tried out several tiny fans and found their output rather feeble.
Including an experimental 1/2" dia. ducted fan. Thank you for your comments. I still intend to try out the microblower. Ed.
Impressive little pump.. Let us know how it actually
works out. You may be onto a new cooling system for
Lasers...
Time will tell... :beer:

Based on the vids I can't see it having much of a volume TBH. Most of what was shown required pressure rather than volume and we need it the other way around. It may be better than I think but I fear it won't move enough air to make any difference.
