Software developer (in love with C++). Hardware geek (FPGA's, STM32, AVR, crazy stuff from discrete components), love LED indicators (7-segment, alphanumeric). Trying to understand ASIC design & manufacturing better at the moment. Also, trying to wrap my head around lens design, but that is not going to be that easy.

comment Low-cost 532nm DPSS laser modulation
@Eion As a side note, I recently realized that common EOM (Pockels Cells) have quite high switch energy due to high voltage and intrinsic capacitance. This makes it dissipate 10-450W of power on 10Mhz depending on aperture... They typically designed to switch fast, but only few 1000's of times per second.

@Ruslan A bit expensive (50-100$), but sold as usual laser diode, no problems. We've bought 26 GaN green lasers already.

I already played alot with GaN green lasers from OSRAM ;-) 50mW and 120mW works just fine :-)

comment Why can Hiroshima be inhabited when Chernobyl cannot?
Actually Chernobyl is already kinda safe now. Typical radiation levels are only 1 uSv/hour and lower, peaking to 10 uSv/hour in the area near to reactor itself. There are populated cities with higher ambient radiation levels. So it's not inhabited only because of intertia, fear and bureaucracy. BTW I lived for 15 years 100km from Chernobyl.
