I am new to lasers. I have some 5mW pointers, but thats it. I want to have something more powerful, and I happened to find this 50mW laser diode with driver:
From the meager description it seems to me all I have to do is putting a 3V supply voltage on the two wires. I, however, could not find anything related to their usage, and due to my lack of experience I am pretty unsure. Am I right? Is there any other thing I should do to make them work as long and as bright as possible?
(I am not really sure if this is on-topic here, and sorry if it isn't. I just couldn't find a better place to ask this.)
