    Hello everyone,

    I am trying to build a replica of a laser therapy device, similar to those used at health clinics to treat scar tissue. I currently have a pulsed laser diode(http://www.farnell.com/datasheets/316991.pdf) and now am looking to find a driver to power it. I would appreciate any suggestions as well as all applicable parts and prices. Currently, I have one model that will supposedly power it( http://www.luminapower.com/pdf/ldpc_application_notes.pdf). I was told that I will need a few parts i.e. a zener diode among others in order to put it together. I am looking for the most cost efficient driver and would greatly appreciate some knowledgable input.
