Osram Opto Semiconductors (Sunnyvale, CA) now offers its first direct green laser diodes. Projection units for laser shows, point lasers, and line lasers will benefit from this new technology. This new technology enables high-color rendering and excellent contrast. Features include:

  • Optical outputs of 30 and 50 milliwatts.
  • Wavelengths of 515 - 530 nm, producing precisely the right green beam for projection applications (PL 520).
  • An optical output power of 50 mW (PL 520) or 30 mW in a wavelength range of 510 to 530 nm (PL 515).
  • An efficiency of 5-6%.
  • A package diameter of 3.8 mm.
