You're welcome.Blu-ray obviously burns better somewhat. if you hold an 400mW 8x to your hand focused to infinity, it will blister you almost instantly, like 3-4 seconds.
if you hold a 400mW red (660nm) laser focused to infinity it doesnt blister you, just stings.
This is just my personal experiance though, i make NO official claims.
i say 405nm burns FAR better per mW
Thx for the plug Daguin ^_^
It is not that violet really burns your skin all that much better than red. It is that the red color is much more easily diffused into the skin and so is no longer "concentrated" in the spot on the surface like the violet is. Also, the violet diode and light can be focused to a smaller dot so the "effect" seems more powerful.
Not that any of that really matters if your skin is smoking, eh?
