With its high output power providing exceptional clarity and visibility, the Opnext HL6385DG laser diode is ideal for use in laser display applications, such as laser light shows. It also offers the brilliance of a light source needed for next-generation miniature displays in the industrial and medical industries; a market which continues to grow due to the rising demand for mobile technologies.

Photonic Products, the UK opto-electronics device manufacturer and laser diode specialist, is delighted to be the authorised distributor of the World’s first 642nm, 150mW, single longitudinal mode semiconductor laser diode with TE mode oscillation; the Opnext HL6385DG.

This innovative laser diode from Opnext offers the highest optical output power on the market at a visible lasing wavelength of 642nm. It supersedes Opnext’s HL6366DG series high power red laser diodes (642nm, 90mW). Opnext’s technology breakthrough was achieved with a new development process, a new waveguide structure and optimised structural parameter.

With its high output power providing exceptional clarity and visibility, the Opnext HL6385DG laser diode is ideal for use in laser display applications, such as laser light shows. It also offers the brilliance of a light source needed for next-generation miniature displays in the industrial and medical industries; a market which continues to grow due to the rising demand for mobile technologies.

The Opnext HL6385DG is a single longitudinal mode, low aspect ratio laser diode with optical output power of 150mW CW (typ), at a lasing wavelength of 642nm, operating current of 280mA, threshold current of 110mA, operating voltage of 2.6V and LD reverse voltage of 2V. The operating temperature range is -10 degrees C to +40 degrees C.

Supplied in a 5.6mm package with LD-only pin configuration, this is a single longitudinal mode laser diode with TE mode oscillation. The 5.6mm package size is particularly suited to small, energy-efficient displays and low-power, high-quality optical applications.

"Opnext is a global leader in high-performance optical components. Technological achievements such as this set them apart from their competitors," said Damon Cookman, Managing Director, Photonic Products Ltd. “We are proud to offer such high quality laser diodes to our demanding customers”.

Opnext laser diodes are lead (pb) free in compliance with the RoHS Directive.

All Opnext laser diodes are registered with the FDA of the United States and each laser diode is classified into class II, IIIa, or IIIb, according to the combination of the optical output power and wavelength values.

Opnext is a good company but sample prices are high. I got some of the early high powered 650's from them for the big price. Sales people are great.

Back when I was "noob" I contacted them about their 405nm diodes the cheapest one was like $300 or something. The person sounded kind of shocked that I sounded like a kid (I'm only 16 now and this was like 2 years back), still they helped suggest other companies and ways I might find a cheap diode. They are really great!

If these diodes are used in electronic displays then somebody is probably going to extract one...but definitely not for a while as I don't they "exist".

well really these wont cost that much more than similar power 635nm diodes and these would have MUCH better beam specs i would think, so for nice for scanners but like a 635 i would not put it near a pointer casing for that use

Can you explain why they would have better beam specs please?
