If the eye has a precieved intensity of 1.0 @ 555 nm, why are most green lasers outputting a wavelength of 532 nm?
I have a 25mw 555nm dpss laserWell, we don't have the technology... yet.
Diodes pump out specific wavelengths depending on the material use, and green DPSS lasers use crystals to convert IR into 532nm.
Sure, it would be great to have green pointers at 555nm, but until we find a new type of laser, it's not going to happen.
We don't designate wavelengths, materials in the laser do, and so far there aren't a lot of choices we have.
