Where does Alice source their IR components?

I was looking for parts for my project involving a laser diode and some kind of sensor able to detect the radiation emitted by the laser, after some research I settled for a components operating at any of the 1450nm / 1470nm / 1550m wavelengths, due to their relative popularity.

I started looking for some cheap parts online and barely found anything, ebay has lots of diodes but the cut off is at 980nm, anything higher is either a full industrial assembly (price spanning $200 and up) so buying it just for the diode is out of the question. The only one worthy of mention was a Mitsubishi 1470nm at $7 from mi-lasers but shipping cost to EU was like $40 so back to square one. Aliexpress wasn't much different from ebay and on alibaba all I found was some shady company trying to sell 650nm diodes labeled as 1450nm.

Is there any realistic chance that I, a mere mortal can get a reasonable price from a manufacturer if i request a quote for like 5 laser diodes?

(Looks like I forgot to delete some words, serves me right for editing stuff in the middle)

Also didn't bright up the sensor part at all because I'm not even sure if I will be able to acquire the laser diode in the first place, but so far I've found some 1000nm-1600nm photodiodes for cheap so in theory could I just put a filter in from of it to block all other radiation aside from the desired wavelength of 1450nm-1550nm?
And ofc where can I get such filters?

Sorry Alice, I don't have much expertise in this area, but this guy has several videos on lasers, and does mods on them to increase there power, it pretty much all went over my head but maybe it would be of use to you, since you could mod a weaker laser to be stronger.

also whats the project?

Not IR specifically, but I built a laser engraver recently and had to order multiple 445nm 1.5W diodes. I don't know what power you are looking for but before buying please make sure you have a pair of protection googles rated for your laser power. IR is invisible and reflects in weird ways, plus sellers like to lie about output power. Very risky to toy with above 5mw - eye surgery costs 10.000€+. Goggles are just 50€.

Sites (besides eBay) I used, they may have your wavelengths:
http://www.aixiz.com/ (looks sketchy but I had no issues ordering)
https://www.survivallaser.com/ (they have the cheapest laser goggles with certificate)
https://laserpointerforums.com/ (They sometimes have group buys)
>Is there any realistic chance that I, a mere mortal can get a reasonable price from a manufacturer if i request a quote for like 5 laser diodes?
I had no luck with that. Maybe if you get a group buy and contact a supplier with a order quantity of 20+? The Laser Pointer Forums have a section dedicated to that. I'd also try asking them for help.

Something that's been on me todo list: see if its possible to write an n64 homebrew that uses the ir in a gameboy robopon cartridge to mess with the tv menu. I know it's possible with a bog standard gameboy color and a tom clancy? game had a feature that did just that. Have everything I need, just haven't got around to opening up the cart\rom to see if its hopefully not too much more fancy than a shift register.

OT, I suppose you can source parts from a broken consumer thing.

Very popular, of course I already watched all videos of his but mostly for entertainment, nice channel but I found noting particular of use for myself

Seems like a cool forum, yet has no category for any kind of IR, but I'll keep it in mind if I need it in the future.

For my use case I'm happy with no more than 5mW, even then it's not meant to operate near humans, also read on some manufacturers page that at 1450nm+ the lasers are semi-eye safe, having something to do with it not being able to reach your retina or something.

Where have I seen this before

At least now I'm sure not to waste my time and hopes. A group buy seems like the only way, but I don't know anyone that might need such a thing, and that laserforum doesn't even have an IR category.

This is the closest to what I am looking for, but as noted previously I'm based outside of burgerland therefore huge shipping costs will apply

Never owned a nintendo lol, but good luck

>OT, I suppose you can source parts from a broken consumer thing.

The only thing that comes to mind would be old/broken medical equipment because this is the most common use for this band, but they never sell for cheap, and if it's considered "broken" then its most likely because its main component, the laser, is in some way damaged. Might be a nice way to salvage useless med equipment garbage but not laser diodes.

It's >>2808 again, I did some digging through my bookmarks and found http://www.roithner-laser.com/. They sell diodes at almost every wavelength and it seems like they'll also send them to private buyers (?)… I haven't bought from them since their web presence is utter garbage, should you order there please report back here. I want some of their stuff but don't know if thy are worth the hassle.

The prices are fucked up, even a red 5mw I would consider expensive compared to ebay but there is no IR diode in 1450nm-1600nm range that is affordable, unless hundreds of dollars for a single diode is "affordable".
If I ever happen to be in the US I'll grab a few mitsubishi diodes from mi-lasers but that's about it.

Let me chime in and say that IMO you are discussing some total noobish soykaf up there.

1k+ waves have extremely bad trasmission rate in the air, are absorbed by almost everything, the devices are reserved for high-end science.

instead normal people go to regular electronics store(e.g. mouser) and buy dirt cheap 600+ leds, photodiodes or laser modules for longer range.

lainon, out.
