    Default Laser pricing question

    I have recently been in negotiation with a few chinese sources for blue DPSS lasers and I have a couple questions for everyone here...

    The way I see it, prices are crazy.

    For the fallowing lasers what would you pay, realistically. I cant guarantee being able to make this happen, but it does help when I start arguing pennies and thinking of flying over there for negotiations....

    473nM
    50mW
    100mW
    200mW
    400mW

    532nM
    50mW
    100mW
    200mW
    400mW

    650-660nM
    50mW
    100mW
    200mW
    400mW

    Thanks everyone, with some luck, maybe I can drive blue prices down.

    It's the price of blue dpss lasers that are going to give you the blues.

    A Melles Griot 58 BLD 605 doing 400 mW new will go for $28,000 USD.

    Mind you production and labour costs are as low as you can get in China but I can't see you getting a 400 mW blue dpss laser for less than $10 grand even from China.
    Unless new technology, methods and materials costs drop drastically, Keep on dreaming!

    Yep,

    I dream of the day a single mode laser diode powerful enough to pump a directly double SHG laser crystal exists and all components are mass produced to bring down the price from champagne living to my beer budget

    Laser beams in my dreams .....
