LASER DIODE POWER
Jun 2006SemiNex Corp.Request Info
A 1550-nm single semiconductor diode laser manufactured by SemiNex Corp. delivers >4.5 W of power, as compared with the 0.8- to 1.5-W output of conventional diodes. Higher-power laser diodes enable laser systems that are smaller and more efficient. The company expects that its instrument will open new markets for laser devices and mass-market applications for infrared lasers. Applications include medical lasers for aesthetic procedures, free-space optical communications, lidar and pumping sources for diode-pumped solid-state lasers.
