I've been admiring those phaser builds too, you know what would make an awesome one? Coaxial beam combining a 1 watt green laser diode with a multi-watt IR diode, if you could get them both collimated together on the output into one beam it would burn like the dickens, far more so than the visible wavelength light component and be able to see where it's pointing to dramatically add to the burning effect. The way to do that is optically easy enough, just the heat sinking and battery supply becomes the challenge for a decent amount of run time.
