These group buys are CLOSED and I won't be doing any more at this time.


ALL ORDERS HAVE BEEN SHIPPED!


These diodes have now been pushed to 1W!!* http://laserpointerforums.com/f40/445nm-casio-laser-diode-compilation-thread-51346-2.html#post709123

This is round 4!!


SAFETY WARNING: Since these are CLASS IV LASERS, goggles are REQUIRED, and GREAT CARE SHOULD BE EXERCISED AT ALL TIMES DURING OPERATION especially if you're using these in portable systems. These things will burn and blind INSTANTLY. No one here is liable for your actions if they result in injury to yourself or others.

A new source of high-powered 445nm laser diodes has been discovered. A new DLP projector from Casio contains 24 high-powered 445nm 5.6mm blue diodes. We should easily be able to do a group buy for these diodes at $50 each shipped in the US.. These are the exact same diodes that can be bought on ebay for >$400, and they are believed to be as much as 500mW. They are multimode, however, so beam specs will be a bit rough. Also, international shipping will cost a tad more, and will be handled on a case by case basis.

Please indicate interest here, if there is enough we can buy a projector and get these diodes burning.

Lots of great info on these diodes in this thread: http://laserpointerforums.com/f40/445nm-casio-laser-diode-compilation-thread-51346.html including pics and P-I-V graphs.

Lots of good info here as well: http://laserpointerforums.com/f40/445nm-sled-pics-51335.html
Very detailed beam profile: http://laserpointerforums.com/f40/445nm-sled-pics-51335-2.html#post709065


Pic is from Casio Beamer


The lens that each diode is paired with in the projector will be shipped with the diode.


The projector for this round will not be ordered until 17 diodes have been paid for.

ROUND 4 INTEREST (22 available this round)

22 of 22 claimed. The projector has been ordered!!

Put me down for 2 more.

I will put the diode from GB #2 in some kind of host, these will be used 1 for my projector and 1 as a backup.
