These 450nm high power multimode blue laser diodes are manufactured by Ostram. These lasers deliver up to 1600mW optical output power and are offered in a standard 5.6 mm TO-can package. Key features include a high output power (continuous wave) of 1.6 Watts with an integrated ESD protection diode to safeguard the LD from voltage transients. These laser is isolated against the package for flexibility in mounting. The primary applications include projection and laser shows as well as illumination. 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.
