475 mW, with direct modulation
This high-power laser diode delivers a CV output of approximately 475 mW. The laser can be directly modulated at MHz rates, making it highly effective for both sustained and pulse mode operation. To ensure uniform illumination of Mosaic's DMD, the optical fiber, which delivers the laser output into the Mosaic, is subjected to mode mixing or phase shearing. This homogenizes the optical intensity profile, achieving typical uniformity better than 5%.
