Blue-violet - the wavelength you've been missing!
Violet, the newest laser pointer color, has a stunning blue-purple glow at 401nm and is used in spectroscopy, fluorescence, microscopy, and more! This violet laser pointer includes two AAA batteries, a hard case, and a one year warranty. We select only the best quality lasers with proper IR filtering and production in clean rooms. See our full range of lasers, covering most of the visible spectrum.
Just need a laser pointer to point with? We recommend the deluxe green laser pointer. As we know from our spectrum lessons, green light is more visible to the human eye than the red or violet and therefore works better as a pointer. In your lessons, ask your students why this is!
Do not buy cheap lasers!
Built to Last- Production of the Violet laser pointer is done in clean rooms that protect the laser diode from damage by dust or moisture. These lasers are aligned by experienced engineers who check several critical points during assembly to ensure reliability. This increases the life expectancy of the laser relative to cheaper versions.
For more information about the problems associated with cheap lasers and the lack of infrared filtering, please refer to this article on the website of National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).Technical Specifications:
