The Optoelectronics Company has announced the launch of the Oclaro HL63153AT, a tiny red laser diode that delivers 150mW single-transverse-mode optical output power at 638nm, which is 25% more power than its predecessors. This is currently the highest single-transverse-mode optical output power at a red wavelength available on the market.
The massive increase in output power is due to a technology breakthrough which Oclaro accomplished by developing new processes, including an optimised waveguide structure, and fine-tuning the laser device structural parameters. The consequent leap forward in performance enables a brighter, more vibrant high-lumen image display for compact mobile devices such as pico projectors, smartphones and mobile gaming devices while greatly decreasing power consumption.
