hello!
This thread is a collection of photos of lasers I own, over the past 2-3years I've really got into building these lasers, understanding how they work, and learning an immense amount of information. I personally enjoy Physics and tinkering with small electronics. Thank you everyone who has helped me out along the way. I've got the gas lasers at the bottom. Some you've seen some you haven't!
top to bottom
~2.7W 9mm 450nm stainless C6
~2.7W 9mm 450mn Mrcrouse host build
~1.9W M140 445 in my stainless host
~1028mW PLB450B S4 host.
~1128mW NDG7475 520 in 501b host.
~638mW S06J 12x 405nm in cree host
~141mW PLB520-B1 in Sinner pen host


A few random pix and thread links
I actually got this laser to peak at 1128mW today. NGD7475 1w 520 green in 501b host


here is a stainless steel host I made myself. its a 1.9W m140 build. with a pocket clip. 2x 18650s


this ^^ laser in the in the Arctic.


Setup for the 9mm stainless C6. I decided to heat sink the driver and make my own contact board.


GAS lasers
these are my first HeNes I picked up from Jefferythe00
~7mW HeNe melles griot decanned
~10mW HeNe Uniphase 1137P
~150mW+ 2214 ML40 argon
^^Handheld fiber is doing 44mW

I used stainless tig wire to form a Y then heat shrinked the contact points to hold up these HeNes.


(note the mini Maglite in the back. don't lie you made one too. 172mW sony)

I added the Uniphase HeNe to the cart.





Argon in a Handheld, (Miss Morghen holding this for me)


Other pictures.
I found this fractured crystal ball at some thrift store I think its interesting.


Depending how you hold it you can catch each line when I put a prism in front of the Argon.




Again thank you so much to everyone who helped me, there is lots more I could add but for now it will do.

Jefferson.



Oh and Next up.....Just kidding..but it would be intense

Beautiful collection! Oh and listen to the Miss Morghen because you never know what will happen when she holds that laser. :D

Sometime within the next few months I want that 3.5W 445 9mm diode. I think I might try to put it in the Mcrouse host depending on driver options.

An ArKr would be nice. Yellow would be cool.

Miss Morghen is pretty good with the lasers. She's a dead shot with an Rifle so the risk of her lasing my face is minimal. I hope.

Awesome collection of diode and gas lasers Umbrella. Love the color of the argon beam.
I have a ALC 60X myself doing about 100mw lasing in 4, 5 or 6 lines depending in how much
power you feed it. :>)

It was hard to pull the trigger, realistically I know the price will drop but I was a bit disappointed with the PLB520-B1 only putting out 141mW. I love the 520nm wavelength and high power output. It made sense to go with this diode so I could get both.
I like the host. I know it's cheap but it works fine and if I ever decide to pull the module out I could with relative ease.
Personally I think the 589 pointers aren't as rewarding because they cost so much money for a low power output. (100-200mW would be nice)

I see on eBay someone is selling a 2mW melles griot 594nm for $750+ Yikes!
