I was drawn into the laser world one day while browsing through instructabls.com.
I saw the "Kip Kay Laser hack" I watched, and was amazed.
I googled for a good long time.
I heard that all it is is just a good way to kill a LD.
Then, I found this forum.
Is it true?
Is there something it is missing to make it work?
:-?

It will work, but the diode will die VERY quickly. When building a laser, you at least have to use a resistor to limit the amount of current going into the diode, and a capacitor to even out any voltage spikes from the batteries, and that's a bare minimum.

The diode I have is(after A LOT of googleing) is 650nm 200mw. :)

Lol.
I meant 5 mW. :D
Also, why is my browser asking me about my clip-board evrey time I post?
And, is there like a list of members active in the topic?
Most other forums have that.

But seriously, read the Important Topics thread in the Experiments & Modifications Board, that will give you a solid start. :)

When you get started, start a thread in the Experiments & Modifications board chronicling your progress. :)
If you can, give us lots of pics!
