LASER COMPONENTS designs and produces PLDs at 1550 nm with high power levels up to 50 W. This wavelength cannot be detected by common night-vision goggles, making the PLDs ideal for military laser rangefinder and friend/foe identification applications.
The 1550 PLDs are manufactured with a base material of InP and additional InGaAsP layers that ensure high reliability, excellent beam characteristics, and outstanding temperature stability. These “eye-safe” PLDs have a wide operating temperature range of –45°C to +85°C, and are housed in a TO-18 can. Packages are also available in 9 mm sizes or custom designs by request.
