Components of Diode Laser





In the most elementary case, a diode laser consists of the elements illustrated in


Fig.1 Design of a diode Laser


1. Laser diode bars

  2. Heat sink (also being the p-contact of the diode laser)
  3. Insulating bushings
  4. Cover plate (also being the n-contact of the diode laser)
  5. n-contact sheet
  6. Insulating sheet between n-contact and p-contact
