Oclaro introduces 150mW single-mode 638nm red laser diode for laser displays

Optical components, modules and subsystems developer Oclaro Inc of San Jose, CA, USA has introduced its HL63153AT red laser diode, which delivers a 150mW single-transverse-mode optical output power at a wavelength of 638nm. HL63153AT offers improved image display over previous versions, enabling high-lumen pico projector or miniature displays for personal computers, and other mobile devices such as smartphones, gaming, and digital cameras, says the firm.

HL63153AT offers the highest single-transverse-mode optical output power at a red wavelength available on the market, with 25% more power than its predecessor. This technology breakthrough was accomplished by developing new processes including an optimized waveguide structure and fine-tuning the laser device structural parameters.

With a low power consumption of 0.6W at 150mW optical output power, the HL63153AT operates in the 638nm wavelength range, and comes in a 3.8mm-diameter TO industry-standard package.
“This newest red laser diode product has been designed as a direct result of customer requests for a shorter wavelength diode that delivers higher power in a thin package,” says Takayuki Kanno, president, Oclaro Japan and general manager of the Modules and Devices business unit. “We are able to deliver this light source with high brightness, high operating temperature range and small-form-factor package, so that system designers can develop compact RGB modules for the mobile display market which is experiencing rapid growth leading into 2014,” he adds.

Oclaro will showcase its portfolio of visible and near-infrared laser devices, and VCSEL products and technology at the LASER World of PHOTONICS conference (13-16 May) in Munich, Germany.

Oclaro customers will have access to working samples of the HL63153AT red laser in July.
