The new Sanyo laser diode catalogue for 2008 is available as a free download from Photonic Products' website.
The newest Sanyo laser diodes includes high-power diodes for use with CD-R, industrial laser diodes at 635nm, 808nm laser diodes for use as a light source for green laser modules and 405nm blue-violet laser diodes for next-generation optical disks and other industrial applications.
Sanyo has also launched a range of DPSS green laser modules with thermo electric control; output powers of 5mW and 10mW are available with a typical lasing wavelength of 532nm. The modules offer exceptional wavelength and power performance over the wide operating temperature range of -10 to +50°C.
Several new 405nm high power blue-violet laser diodes are introduced which have a built-in photodiode for monitoring laser output, allowing easier control of the auto power circuit and greater reliability and precision for very demanding applications. These include the DL-4146-101S, which has an optical output power of 20mW and a low threshold current of 26mA, the DL-5146-101S with an optical output power of 45mW, and the DL-7146-101S, which offers a very high output power of 85mW. All three laser diodes have an operating temperature range of 0 to +75°C.
