Specifying Laser Modules for Optimized System Performance


There are many factors to consider when specifying a laser diode module for your application, both technical and commercial. This 30-minute Webinar examines key criteria to consider when specifying or designing a laser module. Crucial specification criteria will be highlighted, parameters will be discussed — including mechanical, optical, and electronic design as well as laser diode selection — and application examples will be used to illustrate these parameters.

Topics include:

  • Laser module specification parameters
  • Mechanical integration
  • Thermal management
  • Laser diode selection
  • Beam quality

An audience Q&A will follow the technical presentation.
