Hey guys this is going to be my first build. Were would the best place to get a Blu ray diode from? Should I just buy it or should I harvest one from a play station 3 drive for example? All help is appreciated!


:thanks:

HighTechDealz.com sells a 1Watt Blu Ray laser diode press fit into a 12mm x 30mm module for just under $60.

You could then use a RCKSTR drive circuit (check out Aixiz.com for that) to drive the laser or you could build your own drive circuit (plenty of info on the net for how to do this).

If you want, you can check out this video. I made this using the laser diode mentioned above:
