TO-Can diode lasers are laser diode packages that are housed in an integrated metal can and have an integrated lens with a threaded mount, making them ideal for use in OEM applications.
Fiber coupled diode lasers are laser diodes that are coupled to an optical fiber, allowing the laser light to be delivered to a distant location.
Bar diode lasers are a type of laser diode that consists of multiple laser diodes arranged in a row or bar, allowing the laser light from all the diodes to be combined into a single output beam.
What is TO-CAN Laser Diode package?
TO-Can is a type of packaging used for laser diodes. It is an integrated metal can that houses the diode and has an integrated lens with a threaded mount, making it ideal for use in OEM applications. The packages are hermetically sealed with AR coated windows, providing improved performance and reliability for sensitive encapsulated components.
What is Fiber Coupled Laser Diode Package?
Fiber coupled packages are laser diode packages that use an optical fiber to deliver the laser light from the laser diode to a specific spot. The laser diode is usually coupled to the fiber using an optical connector, such as SNA905 connector.
What is Bar (Array) Laser Diode Package?
Laser diode bars are semiconductor laser devices that are designed to emit a high power light in a single direction. They are usually packaged in a sealed enclosure made of metal or a semiconductor material. The package is designed to dissipate the heat generated by the laser diode bars and protect the device from the environment.Laser diode bars are semiconductor laser devices that are designed to emit a high power light in a single direction.

In a Fiber Coupled packaging, the laser diode is coupled to a fiber optic cable, which delivers the laser beam to the application. This packaging offers excellent beam quality, stability, and flexibility in terms of fiber length and type. It is commonly used in applications such as sensing, telecommunications, and medical devices. However, Fiber Coupled packaging can be more complex and expensive than other packaging options, and it may require additional alignment and coupling components.
The Diode Bar packaging is designed for high-power applications that require multiple laser diodes to be combined into a single beam. It consists of a bar-shaped package that includes several laser diode chips, and it offers high power density and efficiency. Diode Bar packaging is commonly used in material processing, such as cutting, welding, and marking. However, the Diode Bar packaging can be more complex to align and control, and it may require additional cooling and monitoring components.
The TO Can packaging is a compact and cost-effective solution for laser diodes. It consists of a metal can with a flat window for beam emission, and it includes a laser diode chip, a monitor photodiode, and a thermistor for temperature sensing and control. The TO Can packaging offers good heat dissipation and can be used in a range of applications such as printing, scanning, and communication. However, the TO Can packaging may have limited power handling and beam quality compared to other packaging options.
