    Default Using 1Watt T03 or C-Mount 650nm Diodes for use in a RGB Scanner

    Does anyone have any thoughts on using one of the new 1Watt 650nm T03 Diodes for use in a scanner system? I have the opportunity to buy 1pc from a manufacturer for as discounted price of $250.00 + 30 DHL Shipping charge. I already have the T03 heat sink and collimating tube. I am however concerned about the size of the beam and if it can be made usable with a focusing lens.

    Would be great if this has already been tested by one of the pro's out there.

    You would fair a lot better with a lower power 642nm dual diode or a 635nm package. The beam is huge from these wide emitters and is really not worth taming.....

    A link to the spec sheet of the diodeWill help decide if this diode is usable.
    When God said “Let there be light” he surely must have meant perfectly coherent light.

    Thanks for the input. That is what I was afraid of.. When you say dual diode, are you speaking of combining with a cube?

    I just added the spec sheet in pdf format.

    Thanks for the reply. Even with a FAC Lens?

    Listen to this man; he is one of the experts and trying to beat big reds into useable beams...
