Product Overview:

1550nm, 1500mW Multi-Mode Laser Diode, Coaxial Package

This Fabry-Perot laser is offered in a multi-mode, fiber-coupled coaxial laser package. The package is designed for good heat conduction so that stable laser temperature can be maintained during high-power operation. This laser is coupled to 105μm multimode fiber, NA 0.22, and terminated with an FC/APC connector.

Proven Laser Diode Expertise

Proprietary design, packaging, and fiber coupling processes produce laser diodes with very high stability and low noise. Extensive testing and burn-in before shipment ensures every laser diode meets the highest quality standards and will provide long-term reliability. Other options are available; inquire for options and details.

Important Notes on Operating Laser Diodes:

Electrical Operation: Operating a laser diode above the maximum ratings shown on the data sheet even for very short periods of time can damage the laser diode or reduce its lifetime. They should be electrically biased with a "laser diode driver" class current supply with low electrical noise and protection against voltage and current surges. Laser diodes are very sensitive to electrostatic discharge (ESD). Proper ESD precautions must be taken.

Mounting and Temperature Control: In order to maintain the lifetime of a laser diode, proper heat management is essential. Due to the design of the laser diode, heat is typically dissipated only through the base plate of the diode‘s package. A proper heat conducting interconnection between the diodes base plate and the heat sink must be maintained. Some devices require the use of a thermo-electric temperature controller (TEC controller) to remove the heat from the laser and stabilize the temperature.
