PLDs Deliver 650W At 905 nm

While residing in compact TO-18 packages, the 905D3J08 series pulsed laser diodes (PLDs) can deliver up to 650W of power at 905 nm. The components rely on multi-junction laser technology that employs several epitaxially-integrated emitters with a total emitting area of 200 μm x 10 μm. At a pulse length of 150 ns, the PLDs can hit a peak performance of at least 70W from a single chip. The metal housing allows a higher thermal load, permitting overdriving the diode and eventually conjuring an output up to 650W from a stacked-array design.
