Nice photos. What were you using to make white with your RGB laser setup? It wasn't the lasers you showed in the first post? The 20 mW HeNe wouldn't be enough red to overcome the 1 amp pump diode current on the 532nm laser. :thanks:
Congratulations to you and your wife, Chris; this is great news, I'm sure she worked hard to accomplish this! :yh:
Like Red said, I'll bet she now knows more about the U.S. than 99% of us who were born here.
I'm sure she's looking forward to seeing you again!
Retiring in the Ukraine, that sounds interesting; this is the first time that I've ever heard of the Ukraine as a retirement destination; it looks like a very beautiful place to live!
I wonder about medical care there Chris. As you are getting older, you will be needing medical care at some point and it doesn't sound like Ukraine has the best physicians and hospitals in Europe. Usually in economies where there is not much money, people with high skills tend to leave. I hope you have factored this into your plans.
Good luck to you, Tero. You do for fun what I wouldn't want to do ever. I did some hiking and camping when I was much younger, but that was quite awhile ago. Nice snag, Chris. I'm surprised that meter and sensor are still accurate with an analog readout it must be fairly old. Was it sold "as is"?
