PINGZHEN CITY, Taiwan, Sept. 2, 2014 — New laser diodes from Arima Lasers Corp. operate at 635 nm with 500 mW of output power. Both achieve an efficiency of 1 mW/mA and have 5.6- and 9-mm-hermetic TO housings with thermal conductivity equivalent to that of C-mount housings. The emitter size is 50 µm. The diodes are suited for biochemical and medical applications such as photodynamic therapy, illumination and laser displays. Laser Components is the distributor.
