A multi beam 101 W laser.

I'd like to see that but made up of one giant custom-made GaN crystal

I suspect the divergence of a 'giant die' laser diode would be no better or even worse than Styro's little ray gun. Physics is a thing.......

Focus it all into a fiber and then recollimate the result?

Fiber laser is best, that way you can wind a super long laser into a coil and get good divergence

Unfortunately that was more a joke than reality. If it could be done we would combine diodes that way all the time. You can do three or four but that’s about the limit. Plus that much power cw would likely melt the end of the fiber
the way it is is done involves very precise expensive combiners.

Don't get me wrong but is this "thread" really necessary?...
Lets face it, alot of threads here aren't necessary, but can bloom into entertaining conversation.
Is Styro's laser over kill and insane yes, but i'm sure 99% of us watched it;)
He always stresses safety, and has all the necessary precautions.
Not many young ones like him have the means nor talent to build this and if he chooses to try and combine these beams, just watch it grow more.:whistle:
