High-Power NIR Laser Diodes for Gesture Control
250 mW Single-Mode Laser Diodes
Bedford, NH: LASER COMPONENTS USA, specialized provider of laser and optoelectronic components in the US and Canada, introduces the new ADL-83Y51TL laser diode, a high-performance, low-cost solution for any application that requires powerful NIR laser diodes with a longitudinal single-mode beam profile, such as camera-supported gesture control.
The ADL-83Y51TL emits in the NIR range at 830 nm and has a cw power of 250 mW. In pulse operation, it can be overdriven to up to 500 mW. Its small, compact TO-56 housing is hermetically sealed, and it allows for an operational temperature of up to 60°C. The component comes with an integrated monitor photodiode for power control and stabilization.
High-power IR sources are also required for medical engineering, printing, and security (IR lighting).
