Laser Diode Mounting Fixture BOZEMAN, Mont., April 9, 2009 – ILX Lightwave Corp. has announced the release of the LDM-4405 TO-can laser diode mount with case temperature control. It accommodates 5.6- and 9.0-mm TO-can laser diodes with three or four pins. An integrated thermoelectric cooling module and calibrated 10-k thermistor provide temperature control over a range of 10 to 85 °C. Standard ANSI and metric post mounting holes enable convenient mounting to standard optical tables.
Fixture design and a unique clamping method result in unobstructed access to the laser diode window for aligning collimating optics. The nickel-plated cold plate provides repeatable low thermal resistance between the TO-can laser diode and the mounting fixture. The LDM-4405 also includes a nitrogen purge capability to allow operation at low temperatures in a humid environment.
The fixture is designed for general laboratory use at universities and in industry. The mount is compatible with most of the company’s modular and benchtop current sources and temperature controllers through interconnect cabling. When the mounting fixture is combined with proprietary laser diode drivers and temperature controllers it provides a convenient and affordable means for controlling TO-can laser diodes.
