IMM Photonics has expanded its range of Fabry-Perot laser diodes to include an 830nm version by Japanese manufacturer QD-Laser.
The 830nm laser diode emits transversal waves in single mode, and supplies an optical performance of up to 220mW in continuous wave mode. The beam angle is 9 x 18 degrees.
Two circuit versions are available. In one, the anode of the laser diode is connected to the housing potential; with the second version, the cathode is coupled with the housing. A photo diode has been integrated for performance monitoring. The laser diode can be deployed in data transmission and sensor technology.
