LASER COMPONENTS Canada produces pulsed laser diodes (PLDs) at an emission wavelength of 850 nm. The 850 series can be characterized as absolutely reliable; it features a low divergence of 10.5° x 20° and high temperature stability up to +85°C.
This PLD has the following parameters: Efficiency: 0.9 W/A, emitter: 150 μm x 1 μm, peak power: 10.5 W, pulse length: 150 ns - this PLD is also suited for significantly shorter pulses up to 1 ns. It is an alternative to Osram's discontinued PLDs.
The 850D1S06x pulsed laser diodes are available as chip on a ceramic submount or in different housings: TO-18, 5.6 mm, 9 mm, 8-32 Coax.
The focus of 850 nm pulsed laser diodes includes applications such as rangefinding, speed monitoring, laser radar, security scanners, or laser light curtains. These PLDs are also used in test and measurement systems.
