Check List for Semiconductor Lasers

Click here to see a check list before buying such products!
  • What is the required emission wavelength? How precise does it have to be? (There are wavelength-stabilized laser diodes, exhibiting a much reduced temperature dependence of the wavelength, which is otherwise often of the order of 0.3 nm/K.)
  • Do you have to tune the emission wavelength, e.g. via the drive current?
  • Do you require a particularly narrow emission bandwidth, or is a standard bandwidth of a couple of nanometers acceptable?
  • Keep in mind that the output characteristics may be spoiled if the diode gets a substantial optical feedback in your setup.
  • How much output power do you need?
  • For quasi-continuous-wave operation: can the required power be provided for a long enough time? What is the allowed duty cycle?
  • For gain-switched diodes: are the obtained pulses sufficiently short and intense? Are there any after-pulses?
  • Is a high power efficiency (wall-plug efficiency) important?
  • What is the required beam quality in x and y direction?
  • Do you need an attached beam shaper for conditioning (e.g., collimating) the output beam?
  • In noise-sensitive applications: what is the relative intensity noise?

In case that you need additional advice, consultancy from RP Photonics may be the solution.
