I was wondering if anyone in the us has any GH0406AA2G that they are willing to part with.

How is the GH0406AA2G different from the GH04W10A2GC ?

I have the A2GC but not the AA2G however I am about to order one for testing from //////// but can you tell me how it's different ?
I would like to knife edge a bunch of multi watt diodes with exceptionally good divergence and the A2GC produces a spot/bar about half as wide as a M-140 in the far field and can be pushed to 2W, what I want to know is how good is the AA2G and how hard can it be driven ? How's it compare to the A2GC as for divergence ?


Correction, I just bought one from here, this seller usually ships from a US address so it arrives faster.

There's a small difference in the divergence, maybe they can be pushed a bit further ?
It's interesting that they are advertised on the Chinese ebay add for " cutting " but that really doesn't mean much, would be nice if they could be pushed to 3W with basically the same divergence.

Red, let us know if it is superior. I got a little curious since its base recommended po was greater.

Will do, I'll check the divergence 1st the record the output vs. drive current and see where they are happy.
