Product Overview:

405nm, 500mW Blue/Violet Laser Diode:

These 405nm blue laser diodes manufactured by USHIO (formerly Opnext) are rated for up to 500mW of optical output power. These devices are multi-mode and are offered in an industry standard 5.6 mm TO-can package (TO-18) with no monitor PD. These lasers feature low operating power levels of 390 mA and less than 5.5 volts of forward voltage required. Gallium Nitride laser diodes at 405nm emit a violet/blue wavelength and are used in many diverse applications. These lasers are offered by OptLasers, and are fulfilled through LaserLabSource.com worldwide. They are offered with a 6 month warranty. To ensure reliable long term operation, care should be taken to properly heat sink your device under test and careful selection of a current source with transient protection is critical.

Proper Handling and Operation of Laser Diodes:
Laser diodes are highly susceptible to damage from ESD and from temperatures exceeding their specified safe operating range. The user is advised to use care and proper ESD safety practices when handling them to avoid damage to the laser. A properly rated low noise current source, a low thermal resistance mount and a temperature controller should be used for optimal device performance and reliability.
