Don't worry, it didn't hurt... much. ::) A LED is fare more worse. I feel good.

Sorry, I tried to take a picture but I just get a useless yellow blob. :(

I'm going to have to figure out how to work my wife's camera. My Lasershopuk <5mw pointer throws a yellow pattern. When the beam is unfocused, it is not noticeable. When the beam is focused, I get the tight violet spot along with an unfocused larger yellow spot around the violet spot and two smaller unfocused yellow spots off to the sides of larger yellow spot.

Peace,
dave

This is killing me! Now I'm really curious to see what is causing this to happen, so I can figure out what may be different in mine, causing it not to happen.

Is it any coincidence that when using my blue DPSS laser when I wear safety glasses, an orange dot is all I can see?

Are you talking about a blue (473nm) or a violet blu-ray (405nm)?

473nm... While most of the blue light gets blocked (when I'm wearing them), the resulting colour dot is orange. Of course this could easilly be the fact of orange goggles + white = orange... :/

Sorry. I haven't seen this phenomenon discussed. Why would there be any "white" light in the 473nm beam?

Peace,

Well, the blue beam, to me anyway, emits more than the blue colour as the brighter it gets, the further to white it gets.  So if you're mixing bright (!) blue with orange, the "white", imo anyway, should be a more dominant factor.  I certainly don't find the dot a shade of brown...

SEE!! That's why I NEED a 473nm laser. It's all in the name of inquiry, I say! Science rulez!! :p

Do you think my wife will accept this reasoning?

Peace,

Why not!  It's all in the name of science...

However, it certainly doesn't show up when I shine the laser through the glasses... But yeah, the blue (473nm) is much brighter when the particles of light are coming towards you, if you look down the beam or it's reflected off the wall it looks almost sky blue compared to the rich blue when viewed from behind...

Edit: Actually you can see in this picture the reflected colour is almost a cool blue, instead of the soft dark blue...
