Breakthroughs in Laser Bar Component Packaging & Self-Cooled Laser Diode Arrays

Mr. Sevugan Nagappan, OSRAM Opto Semiconductors, Novi, MI

Co-sponsored by the New England Chapter of SPIE


Abstract:  Laser Diode Arrays continue to gain momentum as a versatile, cost-effective, reliable solution for a wide variety of existing and emerging illumination and pumping applications.  In order to meet these growing demands, designers find themselves faced with three challenges: reducing system size, improving user serviceability, and managing cost.  This paper will address both these issues and will highlight OSRAM Opto Semiconductors’ advancements in providing solutions to these challenges.
