    Default Melles Griot Laser Modules

    I just picked up a bunch of these yesterday, they are cute little 3.5mW 670nm modules from Melles Griot. I don't expect that any of you would be interested for the diode in it, but the optics are a true gem. First is a nice glass acromat followed by a large pair of anamorphic prisms, these shape a square beam into a round beam. All the optics are coated for 670nm so they would work perfectly with a DVD burner diode. As for the electronics, the module uses a 5.6mm can held in by a plate that is screwed down, there is a temperature sensor and a TEC on the laser diode part. I would guess that someone here with better electrical knowledge could easily make a driver board and temperature controller for these.

    I don't know how much these are worth to you but I am open to offers!



    CLICKY!!!

    How much for one? I have seen these on fleabay. I think I have one or two here somewhere. I got them for the prisms. After some experimenting I was unhappy with the amount of losses.....

    Cool

    Steve-o should check one out and see if the optics will help him tame that 636 nm diode he's been working with!

    I don't know how much I should charge, I thought $30 was a good price but because I only have 5 to sell, I think I should charge a bit more. Let's say $45 without the mount.

    Question

    Have you fired any up to make sure they work? I agree, Steve-o should check these out.
