    Default 1W 8x single mode 637nm module build

    In the next couple of weeks, I'll try to make a black and sexy laser module from this pile of metal



    Maybe step by step or maybe in "before-after" style I'll publish results here.

    This is an "adapted R.Crumb poster" and shows the mental effects of alignment of four (4) P-73 LD's...

    SOoooo....with eight (8)....even single mode.....very challenging !!!

    Original Art by the GREAT R.Crumb !!!! You are epic !!

    Bbe....please advise the number of " AAAAAAArrrrugggggg 's " vocalizations per diode......

    Today decided to experiment with cheap G2 lenses. Along the way, found one semi-killed diode. Some "piu-piu" pics:



    On the wall @7m distance


    ...expected that the result will be worse

    great photo Bbe! and those mounting arrays look so nice and compact.
    I do not see any Lasorbs, what is your opinion on protecting against transients? or do you have something else that does this yet is smaller on that board there in back?
