    Ive been looking for a decent source for 350mW 5.6mm laser diodes for about 2 weeks now, and the only way I have seen to get them for under $40 is to buy in bulk lots of 1000 units.

    Still searching, I know there has to be a decently priced source for these things somewhere.

    Gabriel mentioned being able to get some 500mw diodes for under 50 bux?
    not sure if this is a pipe dream or not..
    Im sure this is a large volume price.
    but havent seen anything from him for a while

    Yeah..I'm in the same boat as you guy's ..still looking for a cheaper source than Grammy or Roithner...I'm running very low on my last batch of 350's.
    5.6mm devices are so tuff to find..
    I did buy a 9mm 1.2watt unit but havnt tried it out yet..I'm afraid its emitter width
    is too big without changing the pump optics.

    Would be nice if the diodes were much cheaper.

    So my lasering is put on hold

    I am thinking of buying a few 500mW 808nm Diodes
    in the TO-3 Package for experimentation...
    These do not have a TEC or a PD in them , Just the diode..
    Just might be the thing you might be looking for...

    They go for just under 100.00USD shipped each.
    My vendor will sell me these in quantities..the prices goes down 20.00USD
    each on 20 or more..
    If you want a 1w unit they are 150.00USD each shipped.

    Remember these are the easy to use TO-3 package

    I am still negotiating a price for the 9mm cans..Stay Tuned
