And these diode stacks are flashlight style when it comes to beam profile, even a single diode bar has usually 19 emitters with 500um spacing, making a 10mm line that you need to work with. These areonyl usefull for pumping lasers or anything not requiring a good beamprofile.
so back to the initial diode of this threat.
would it be possible to make a heatsink efficient enough to cool this thing while running in non pulsed mode? or would the plastic of the diode melt before the heat can reach the heatsink?
