Laser Diode B-Mount Package

High Power Laser Diodes

High Power laser diodes (multimode laser diodes) have an enlarged emitter that allows higher power than single mode laser diodes.  The output power varies depending on the wavelength needed.  Laser diodes are available in wavelengths from the UV (~370 nm) through the mid IR (>2 um) wavelengths. High power laser diodes are able to reach output powers of many watts in some wavelengths, and just 100's of milliwatts in other wavelengths. This table defines the maximum output power available at various wavelengths from a single emitter:

Output Power by Wavelength
Wavelength

Maximum Output Power per Emitter

300 mW
1 W
2.5 W
700 mW
1.1 W
2 W
8 W
12 W
8 W
8 W
9 W
2.7W

These output powers are based on single emitters.  If higher output power is needed, multiple emitters can be used to increase the power.  Multiple emitters can be individual emitters optically combined in to a fiber which we call multi emitter packages, or multiple emitters can be produced as a laser diode array or laser diode bar.  To learn more about laser diode configurations, see out Lasers 101 page.

High Power Laser Diode have more waste heat than single mode laser diodes, therefore the package options are different and typically have much better heat sinking capacity. Here are some of the more standard package options:

Many other packages are available upon request.

Our line of high power laser diodes is the most complete in the industry. The products range from 375nm to nearly 12 microns in both multi-mode and single mode configurations. We manufacture single emitter diode lasers, laser diode bars, laser diode arrays and multi-element laser diode modules that combine the output from individual emitters. Each type of device is available in both free-space and fiber-coupled configurations.

We also specialize in laser assemblies that offer a combination of the laser, optics, thermal management, and drive electronics. These packages can be customized for the specific application or customer system. This ability allows us to design around specific requirements for your laser diode, whether it be performance, cost, or size.

Many high power laser diode purchasers buy diode-based products and then struggle integrating them into their own systems. A common approach for the system manufacturer is to design the system first and then try to find a laser diode solution that matches the design. They then often experience issues in the following areas:

  • Thermal management
  • Optics/beam shaping
  • Drive control electronics

These problems add cost, impair performance, cause delays, and can put customers in adversarial relationships with their laser diode suppliers. In the worst case, improper specification or integration can mean the difference between a successful prototype or product line and one that either never makes it to production or is out-gunned by a better designed competitive product once it goes to market.

Our Partners develop and produce industry leading high power laser diodes and specialize in the following:

  • Epi Wafer Growth and Characterization
  • Wafer Processing
  • Facet Coating
  • Chip and Bar Dicing
  • Chip and Bar Testing
  • Chip and Bar Packaging
