OLCHING, Germany, Aug. 29, 2013 — Laser Components GmbH has introduced Optowell Co. Ltd.’s 850-nm high-power vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs). The devices provide a threshold current of 5 mA and a temperature coefficient of 0.06 nm/°C. At an efficiency of typically 0.4 W/A, they are available with a CW output power of 10 and 20 mW. Both types are available in a TO-46 housing. They offer a 1.25-Gb/s data rate and are suited for sensor technology and for fast data transmission systems via optical fibers or free beam.
