OSRAM Laser Diode

The PL 520 singlemode CW-Laser-Diodes / Laser-Diode comes in a TO-38 package from Osram. Its output power is 0.05W (Watt) with an ideal working temperature range is at 0°C - 60°C (degrees Celsius). It works at a wavelength of 520nm (Nanometer).


Laser-Type: CW-Laser-Diodes

Continuous-wave (CW) laser diodes are integral to many modern technologies, offering reliability, efficiency, and versatility across various fields.

Mode: singlemode

The primary advantage of singlemode lasers lies in their superior beam quality. The beam emitted is highly focused, with minimal divergence and high spatial coherence. This results in a sharp, well-defined beam that can be tightly focused to a small spot size. Such characteristics are essential in applications like high-resolution microscopy, precision cutting, fiber optic communications, and various scientific research endeavors where accuracy and beam precision are crucial.

wavelength: Visible

Visible lasers have a broad array of applications. In communications, they are used in optical fiber systems for short distances. Medical applications include surgeries, eye treatments like LASIK, and various diagnostic tools. The entertainment industry employs visible lasers in light shows to create striking visual effects. In measurement and detection, laser rangefinders and LIDAR systems use visible lasers for measuring distances and mapping, while bar code scanners often use red laser diodes. Research and development fields utilize visible lasers in spectroscopy, microscopy, and other scientific investigations to study material properties.
