    Default Mitsubishi ML501P73-02 638nm 500mW Laser Diode GB Feeler

    This is just a feeler GB to get something going before the testing/evidence/proof of the pudding is complete.

    Emitter is confirmed as 40um x 1um Open can version of the 300mW G71

    First Lenses available from user: Dave
    Beam correction kits available from user: kiyoukan


    From a supplier, GB quantities can be:

    30 x 110 usd each.

    50 x 100 usd each.

    100 x 90 usd each.

    Lower volumes for testing are available on ebay
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/ws/eBayISAPI...m=261001701969


    Will note the minimums for now.

    When God said “Let there be light” he surely must have meant perfectly coherent light.

    Well, it looks like were over the 100/ea discount-price break already.. I'm all for less diodes and more power. Less optics too, so less cost there .. which compensates some for the greater diode cost. Plus less pieces to align =less pain-in-the-butt .. :] Which is worth paying a little more for too imho ..

    I have 10 on the way, 6 from one supplier and 4 originals from Mitsubishi to compare them and do some testing with the same lenses used for the G71 to see if the results match.

    I have also found now 4 different sources for the diodes.

    First they're nowhere to be found, now they're everywhere! Mitsu must have finally decided to release them ..

    They are definitely real. From what I have been told Mitsubishi has released them in quantity.

    My batch of P73 500mW will arrive today for testing, so we should in one or two days be able to confirm the specs are ok.

    I understand DTR will also have some too in a days or so.

    I think Andy was just waiting to get them in his hands to do some testing before proceeding. That is not necessarily a bad thing with a new diode.

    Yup we got some great photos of the diode to know now there is a good amount of changes that suggest a much stronger diode.
    I am very excited to get some of these and push them i want at least 750mw to 1w stable out of a single diode to make the cost worth it.

    Exactly, and here's the test results page for those who don't know where it is.

    http://www.photonlexicon.com/forums/...e-Test-results

    Me and DTR both have good sources now, Anyone want to drop out of this GB are welcome and also welcome to pay the higher none GB price later.

    I am testing the diodes are VERY ok before committing them to the GB.

    As soon as we finalist the diode we'll go with the GB or not and this answer should be known later today.

    Certainly I powered one and it looks strangely better than the G71

    Oh, The G71 seams to have been dropped as a product from Mitsubishi already.
