I was wondering if anyone has done any tinkering with temperatures of a laser diode. I do know that without my TEC module cooling my diode, I run it for 1 minute 30 seconds and the temp inside the aixiz is 106° Fahrenheit. With the TEC on, after 2 minutes, the temperature is 64° Fahrenheit. I was just wondering if anyone would know a safe operating temperature for 100% duty cycle. I have ran my diode at 300 mA for 8 minutes straight at 64° Fahrenheit. So I would assume this is pretty much 100% duty cycle.
