  • Batteries Included
  • Measured for compliance

At 405 nm, a violet laser pointer emits a pale purple beam that is very close to the ultraviolet range. The beautiful purple beam is less visible than red or green because our eyes are less sensitive to the Ultra Violet (UV) range, so you won't use it for ray tracing experiments. But:

At 5mW (like our other standard laser pointers) the violet laser pointer has a shorter wavelength beam which gives it an amazing superpower – it is energetic enough to teach and demonstrate fluorescence, spectroscopy, and microscopy. 

Here is our favorite fluorescence experiment for you to try!

This product comes with a black barrel and is securely packaged inside a foam case with batteries included.

Laser Pointer FAQs

What are "Super Safe" laser pointers?

Our Class II (<1 mW) laser pointers (our "Super Safe" line) are preferred by schools and teachers, especially when kids will be handling them. These are considered safe by the FDA as long as they are not pointed directly in the retina for prolonged periods of time.

Are 5 mW lasers safe for kids?

Class IIIA laser pointers (<5 mW rating) should normally be handled by adults. They can damage a person's retina if pointed directly at the eye for many seconds to minutes, but our natural "look away" reflex usually prevents any damage by keeping exposure short.

Which color is the best?

Green is the most visible, red is the safest around kids, and violet lets you experiment with fluorescent materials. They each have their use, so consider getting one of each!

Which is best for learning about lasers?

We recommend our LaserBlox, which are specially designed for classroom demonstrations and experiments. They won't roll, can be stuck on a white board, and can be stacked magnetically for ray experiments.

Great brightness and build quality :) I just wish it had a switch to stay on without having to hold the button down

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I order with a tax-exempt certificate?

We only automatically charge tax to shipping addresses in Ohio. If you're in Ohio, please email us your tax exempt certificate with purchasing email you'll use. We will keep it on file and mark your purchasing email as tax exempt. Then you can place your order normally without being charged taxes.

If you're outside of Ohio, you can go ahead and order now without being taxed. Then, go ahead and email us your certificate so we can mark your account. If we expand in the future, we may eventually charge taxes in your state.

How do I order using a Purchase Order and Invoice?

We'll need to set up a custom order for you and mark it for payment due later. Please email us to receive a quote that includes shipping and taxes. Then, email us your PO. After shipping, we'll email you the invoice with payment details. Please note that if we do not have an existing relationship with your institution, we may require payment before shipping to reduce our risk of fraudulent orders.

Do you offer classroom discounts?

We offer discounts on most products for orders of more than 10 of any one item. Another price decrease is available at 25 pieces - typically what's needed for a classroom. If you are interested in those quantities, please email us and include your item and quantity details for a quote.

Why buy from LaserClassroom?

A report issued by NIST (the National Institute of Standards and Technology) found that 90% of the green laser pointers on the market tested out of compliance with FDA Safety Regulations.

  • Every batch tested

    We test every batch of laser pointers to ensure total power output is compliant.

  • Infrared Filtered

    Green laser pointers can leak invisible infrared light. Ours are made with IR filters for extra protection.

  • FDA Compliant

    We follow FDA regulations closely and ensure our products are compliant so you can be sure you are, too.

  • Trusted by professionals

    We've been providing laser pointers to educators and researchers for over 10 years.
