May 2006SemiNex Corp.Request Info
SemiNex Corp. has announced a laser diode with
>4.5 W of optical power at 1550 nm. The single-semiconductor device is suitable
for applications such as medical aesthetic procedures, lidar and free-space optical
communications, and for pumping diode-pumped solid-state lasers. The company says
that the additional power compares favorably with conventional lasers with 0.8 to
1.5 W, providing a three- to fivefold increase in laser performance.
