Has anyone ever tried igniting a flash paper with a green laser pointer?

Thanks.
Yours,

Yes I just checked. The green laser will not ignite flash paper and doesn't even feel warm on the hand. A !@#$h t**y would give the illusion that you could though.

Yes. I checked on laser forums too. Only Bluray/violet laser pointers of certain power ignite flash paper.

And yes, what you mention is what triggered the idea in my head.

Yes, but that's not the laser that ignites the flash paper Smile

I love Rick's Products.

Try making a big dot with a black marker on the flash paper. It works on my red laser pointer. Anything black will be burnt.

Look around and you can find tutorials on making a laser pointer using a DVD burner diode. This is powerful enough to light a match, so flash paper will ignite quickly and easily using one of these.

Yeah an old dvd or cd burner from a computer you should be able to pull that burner out and use it. I have seen many videos lighting matches and paper

From my own experience, it burns holes but doesn't get it going to 'burn' it.

How do you burn a hole through flash paper and not ignite it?
Keep your dreams alive. Understand to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination, and dedication. Remember all things are possible for those who believe.
