Fiberstar Laser Light test

Post  liteglow on Fri Jun 25, 2010 2:53 pm

Here is some pictures of the Fiberstar Optic Light test, light source: 150mW Laserpointer














The light is pretty bright, and the laser is only 150mW maybe less...
Imagine how it will be if I try my 1500mW laser Laughing Laughing

What surprise me most is why you use overpriced luxeon LED, when you can use Blue, Red and green laser diodes that cost less than Luxeon Rolling Eyes and have much more power.
Laser light have a different way to light thing up, not always so pretty as LED, but as I can tell from the pictures, there was no difference when using the laser.

AWESOME! That is incredible!!!!

You have a good point about the laser diodes. For us newbies in the laser world can you point to a good source for purchasing lasers and what to look for?

Hello Filip. WOW thAT IS incredibe! Looks fantastic. Really bright like it should bee.
The Bad part Sad :
Great light. But you should know about the laser Problems and sfety using, more than 10 mW is really dangerus if persons hit the stream and preduce refractions with ther hands, or ty to look into the stream. With 150mW or more its a deadly water gun for your Eyes, be carefull, when a tecnical defect is happen and the water stopps, the laser is going out without any protection! If a child is fascinating and try to play with it! I am shure no one will be responsibility for that.

I dont want to be a spoiler, but think on that problems too.

Thank you both :-)

Yes it`s incredible bright !!
And the pictures was taken in daylight also (no Photoshopping there) ...

Yes Mario, it`s very important about the safety on lasers.
Actually 4,99mW was the ONLY legal power to have in a laserpointer.
Today you can only have 1mW in a laser pointer.

more than 5mW directly is "safe" , but any more power than that can be dangerous to your eye.
When that said, 150mW from a laser pointer with a beam divergence at 1mm , and 0.9 mrad !
That will say it`s 150mW in 1mm diameter pointing directly to your eye.
the mrad is how much the focus point (dot) get bigger each meter away from the aperture.

If you focus the 1mm 150mW laser into a beam that is 20mm big in diameter, only 1-2mm of that will hit into your eye.
And if you also include the loss from the Fiber optic, rod inside the nozzle, and the water that will break up the beam in all directions.
I think it`s "safe" to use a laser in the nozzle..

Also the fact that you will only use the laminar nozzle in your own garden when YOU are home, I dont think there will be any "real" danger about that Smile

But if you plan to use laser, there is like Mario said, some important safety notes you must take precaution at !
You can buy cheap green lasers, Red laser diodes is not that expencive, and thanx to Casio that have released a new laser projector that have 24pc of HIGH power blue laser diodes inside it, the price in total will not be much !

I maybe think you can use the blue laser diodes without any use of lenses ?

when I receive my blue laser diodes, I will try to add some of them into my nozzle, I did pay 50$ for 2 1W blue diode.
And if you use 2 fiber cables from one laser source, you can split them into your nozzles.

Like this:

Some more pictures of the nozzle and the FIBER holder:











And here is my filter:





2 hoses that goes into the nozzle, and there is filter around it Smile
The pumps is outside of the "filter"

looks really nice, what kind if lase do you use?
whats the power in mW ?


the problem with lasers, is that you cant get the full rgb scale, or is there rgb lasers ?

This is a 1Watt blue laser (on the picture it`s 400mW) !
Yes you can have full RGB with laser, 16 million colours !

I have a RGB laser scanner..
You need Green, Red, and a blue laser to get full colour laser system Smile
And you will need 3 drivers, one for each laser.

There is no problem using a laser, but you need to understand the basic of a laser first.
And understand the danger with laser light !! 1Watt of laser will make you blind for rest of your life if you use it wrong cyclops
