Business End of DVD Laser

Posted 2006.10.05 0.00 in Lasers by Stephanie

More tinkering with lasers. I’ve pumped up my DVD laser even more. A better lens gives it higher output. From 180mW to 205mW, on week-old batteries.

Enough power, when focused, to cut through electrical tape in 6 seconds. Enough power even, to burn the wood-like-finish of my desk!

Stephanie likes lasers.
