445nm Laser Project.

Posted 10/06/2012 at 10:34 PM by Giovanni

[QUOTE=Giovanni;20758332]ANATOMY:

The laser has several parts. The safety goggles, laser lens, heat sink, laser Diode (LED), driver circuit, host, and batteries. The diode and driver circuit is housed in the heat sink. The heat sink and batteries house are housed in the host. In this case the host is a converted LED flashlight. I mentioned the goggles because safety first. The batteries power the laser driver circuit. The driver circuit provides a steady current and voltage to the laser which creates a large amount of heat.

The Kit as it come from the maker. It does require some simple assembly.

The Heat sink in this kit came with the laser diode installed.
