A range of lead-free, visible wavelength laser diodes—rated to 50°C—offers very high output powers of 40 mW absolute maximum (DL-LS1148) or 25 mW absolute maximum (DL-LS1164) in a 5.6-mm package. These high output powers were previously available only in a 9-mm package laser diode. The Sanyo diodes are part of a range of laser diodes with a new diode type structure that results in a beam circularity ratio of 2:1, compared to the previous beam circularity ratio of 4:1.
