    Default the beginning of something wonderfully blue

    Came in today.......can handle 20 watts of 808. Earlier efforts proved promising.......with a much smaller set. And NO these are not off fleabay. Direct from manu to me.

    I think I told you but I have a blue thin disk laser in the works using four 30 watt fiber supplied pump lasers.

    Curious about a smaller cheaper portable kit.

    I have many many melles griot 20watt and sdl 3-5 watt pump diodes
    clicking on my avatar will show the tricolor photocoagulator resonator cavity from a Lumenis Varia eye surgery medical laser, which i am attempting to refit. It originally was designed to produce 50-1500mw of 532 / 50-600mw of 659nm / 50-600mw of 561nm (Yellow)
    Clicking on my Avatar will show a picture of the inside of this cavity with a 1cm bar diode in the first of 3 OEM postions & KTP holder.

    Big diodes are nice but present another stiff problem when it comes to modulation. Much better design in the driver arena here is a must. I will tend to stick with the smaller stuff.....5 and 8 watters ...diodes that is.

    very interesting!!!
    Guess it's quite a difficult task to get a blue dpss laser out of that kit but definitely possible! I would also be interested in knowing the results so I might consider to go that way...remember that we like pictures :-) so please, keep us informed about the building process! I'm sure you'll do great work and I'm very curious...

    All the best!

    Jonny was a chemists son,
    but now he is no more,
    for what he thought was H2O,
    was H2So4..

    All my lab lasers have modulation control from a front panel bnc connector seems z big boys use water cooled q switches to work with but yes I think for any scanner usage a few 100's of mw's to a watt or two is going to be plenty to work with and plenty dangerous if misused.

    My latest obtained 4 channel 0-40amp laser drivers are by newport and feature rs232 control.

    I really like the compact vicor flatpak 3.3vdc 40amp units they make nice laser drivers as do the bigger 120 amp units.

    Still have a heavy as shit old Lamda 0-7.5VDC digital readout rack mount 100 amp supply that has served me well for benching stuff I would like a wavelength 6500 to work with small stuff.
