850-nm single-mode VCSELs

850-nm single-mode VCSELs are the perfect choice for demanding sensor system applications due to their improved optical characteristics. Higher-order longitudinal and transversal modes are suppressed by the innovative chip design; at the same time, the polarisation is linearly stable.

Gaussian-shaped beam profile

The absolutely symmetrical and Gaussian-shaped beam profile makes the optical design of your application significantly easier.

Low beam divergence

A reproducible divergence angle in the range of 20° (1/e2) makes beam guidance easier.

Low spectral width

The laser line with a spectral width of a typical figure of 100 MHz makes this laser perfect for spectroscopic applications.

Low power input

A power input in the range of a few milliwatts allows battery operation in mobile applications.

Beam profile

In the far field, the intensity distribution of the single-mode VCSEL is perfectly Gaussian shaped

LIVT characteristic curve

Benefit from low threshold currents and a linear performance across a large temperature range

Spectrum

Higher-order modes are strongly suppressed; the spectrum has an extremely narrow band

Optical encoder for high-precision positioning

Single-mode VCSELs are perfectly suited to use in optical encoders due to their Gaussian-shaped beam profile, their low power input, their long coherence length and their outstanding reliability.

FTIR (Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy) Grafik, TRUMPF Photonic Components

FTIR (Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy)

Due to the low temperature dependence of the emission wavelength (0.06 nm/K) and the narrowband spectral emission of a typical figure of 100 MHz, temperature-stabilised single-mode VCSELs are particularly suitable as a wavelength reference for FTIR spectrometers.

Chip

For high-volume applications and highly integrated sensors, we provide this laser diode as a chip. The laser diodes are supplied as chips on a tape here. This delivery format requires a pick & place or a die-bonding process for processing the laser diodes.

TO46

VCSELs in a hermetically sealed TO46 housing allow easy handling of the laser diode and are suitable for operation in demanding ambient conditions. In addition, a burn-in test is made possible; an integrated Zener diode reduces the ESD sensitivity.

TO46 with TEC

A package with an integrated TEC is suitable for applications that demand a large temperature window or require spectral stabilisation of the laser diode. The Peltier element makes it possible to precisely regulate the laser temperature using the NTC thermistor; due to the hermeticity of the housing, condensation on the VCSEL can be excluded.
