I used be a frequent poster I was around before the forum change here in fact. The past year for me has had busy with my job and many personal issues. I've had no real time for lasers so I had mark them off the hobby list. I have time again and I notice the technology has jumped very quickly! 445nm diodes 1500mW portable lasers!? I can recall when the first 500mW blu-ray laser was considered extremely powerful. What's new in LASER technology aside from these new wave of 445nm diodes? I'm curious to know what I've been developed since I've been away.
