Whether it's in sensors for autonomous driving or driver monitoring, in smartphones or in digital data transmission – laser diodes from TRUMPF Photonic Components are used in countless high-tech applications for the consumer market and in the industrial sector. They offer the benefit of top performance data transmission with a comparatively low power input. In the case of VCSEL (vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser) laser diodes, the light is emitted perpendicular to the plane of the semiconductor chip; this is different to edge-emitting laser diodes, where the light is emitted on one or two edges of the chip.
