SYD1230 Laser Diode What is it?
SYD1230 or CHT1230 laser is an industrial grade light emitting device, it is red in the shape of a pointer or cross, it is factory set to obtain a cross-shaped beam of light as it incorporates a glass lens that generates the shape of a cross, in the same way if you only require that the laser be a pointer, disarm the laser and remove the crystal finally, reassemble the laser, in this way the laser will be a pointer.
What is it for?
It is used to generate a beam of light in the shape of a pointer or cross, ideal for industrial use to have a point of reference or guide others, it is very useful for electronics projects.

Laser types by media type
The means of amplification of the laser is a charge of atoms of a solid, a liquid or a gas with electrons to stimulate around the nucleus. Lasers, therefore, can be:
Solid state lasers:
They have laser material distributed in a solid matrix, for example ruby or neodymium-YAG (yttrium aluminum garnet) lasers. The neodymium YAG laser emits infrared light at 1,064 microns.
Gas lasers (helium and helium-neon, HeNe, are the most common gas lasers):
They have a primary output of a visible red light. CO2 lasers emit energy in the far infrared, 10.6 microns, and are used to cut hard materials.
Excimer laser (the name is derived from the terms excited and dimers):
They use reactive gases like chlorine and fluorine mixed with inert gases like argon, krypton or xenon. When electrically stimulated, a pseudomolecule or dimer is produced and, when lasers are applied, it produces light in the ultraviolet range.
They use complex organic dyes such as rhodamine 6G in liquid solution or suspension as a laser medium. They can be adjusted in a wide range of wavelengths.
Semiconductor lasers (sometimes called diode lasers):
They are not solid state lasers. These electronic devices are generally very small and use little power. They can be embedded in larger arrays, for example the writing font in some laser printers or compact disc players.
