Use our lasers with a heatsink for better thermal control and wavelength stability. Our TO- and fiber coupled packages are compatible with any standard heatsink.

Specific nanoplus heatsinks facilitate the installation of our TO5 and TO66 workhorses. Please check their advantages below. OEM customers might wish to have a look at our OEM module section for special solutions.

All our TO headers are available

  • without cap: not recommended
  • with cap without window: mechanical protection of laser chip, e. g. during installation in setup
  • with cap with window: mechanical protection of laser chip, e. g. during installation in setup, hermetically sealed capsule, protection of laser chip from dust, water vapour, oxygen and other harmful impacts

For our TO5 and TO66 workhorses, we offer

  • caps with black interior coating and antireflection coated windows: minimization of back reflection of the window, optimized antireflection coating for each wavelength

Internal photodiode

For many wavelengths we offer an internal photodiode. Please ask us for this option.
