Add to cart. NUBM44 is a nm laser diode that emits 6 W of power. Although NUBM44 is specified with a typical center wavelength of nm, it is sometimes referred to as a nm laser diode in other literature. Although this is a multimode laser diode, it has an extremely narrow waveguide, which allows it to have nearly the lowest etendue far-field divergence for a given beam diameter of any high-power semiconductor laser.
The narrow emitter width allows it to be better collimated and focused than other high-power laser diodes. This 6 W blue laser diode is relatively impervious to operating temperature compared to other high-power semiconductor lasers and has a case operating temperature range of 0C to 65C. This is only possible due to the recently developed Gallium Nitride laser technology. Low long-term degradation levels at elevated temperatures cannot be achieved with the current Gallium Arsenide laser technology that is used for red and NIR laser diodes.
Thus, this blue laser diode is a reliable choice for various environments and applications. Additionally, this GaN laser has a special TO-5 9 mm package, which allows it to have a lower thermal resistance than is typically possible for a laser diode at this power level.
The 9mm TO-Can is also hermetically sealed, which protects the semiconductor laser chip from dust and other contamination. In contrast, high-power red and NIR laser diodes typically require a C-mount package, which has an exposed facet, making them subject to issues with reliability if not operated in a cleanroom environment. Although the laser is relatively impervious to case operating temperature, we do recommend that suitable heat sinking is used with NUBM44 and other high-power laser diodes.
6W 445nm Diode Laser
Specifically, a low-thermal resistance ideally less than 1. A laser diode mount with low thermal resistance will reduce the amount of localized heating produced by the laser element and minimize the path to thermal ground. Such a TO package mount will also reduce the amount of thermal drift, which affects both the power and wavelength.NUBM44 is a nm, 6 W laser diode.
This is the highest power diode currently available. In comparison, other laser diodes at nm and nm have a lower specified optical power. Note that NUBM44 is also considered a nm laser diode, and the two wavelengths are often used interchangeably to describe it. This blue laser diode is the highest power laser diode currently available for a laser with a single emitter or in a standard TO package.
This GaN laser operates at up to 65 C without significant reductions to the lifetime. NUBM44 is also referred to as a nm laser diode.
NUBM44 445 nm 6 W High-Power Blue Laser Diode
There are many applications for the Nichia NUBM44 laser diode due to its unique lasing wavelength of nm. These include engraving, RBG laser, fluorescence laser, phosphor pumping, microscopy and imaging, optogenetics, art and architecture, illumination and Thulium-doped fiber pumping.
For example, low-etendue broadband white light sources can be made by pumping phosphor with this nm laser. This GaN laser is also an excellent choice for engraving laser heads because the optical power, power density, operating temperature, and material absorption are all higher than for a typical GaAs or CO2 laser.
The price of a blue laser is also lower. There are also many applications for nm being developed at the present time. This nm semiconductor laser is relatively unaffected by increased heating at the P-N junction compared to other high-power laser diodes.
This permits an operating temperature T-case to be specified over 0C to 65C. It also allows a lifetime typ. Performance almost impervious to operating temperature is possible largely due to a novel blue laser diode technology that uses a Gallium Nitride laser structure. In comparison to Gallium Nitride GaN laser devices, Gallium Arsenide devices material classification used for red and NIR semiconductor lasers tolerate power densities of at 1 to 2 orders of magnitude lower than GaN devices.
This limitation affects the red and NIR laser diode performance in several ways. The power of a blue laser diode is 5x to 10x higher than a red or NIR laser.
The waveguide is also typically 10x smaller, which significantly improves the ability of the laser to be collimated and focused. Furthermore, the lasing chip can also be much shorter for a blue diode, resulting in a lower threshold current. Although the overall efficiency of a multimode GaN laser chip is lower than its GaAs counterpart, it has many significant advantages such as a reduced need for temperature control.Remember Me?

Here's what I'm calling Project - a compact, simple, fully-integrated laser platform. It differs from the usual 'flashlight-style' hosts here, and instead uses a single PCB as the host. This allows mounting of batteries, switches, and has an on-board microcontroller for an array of basic functions. As of writing, it is currently the most powerful available visible wavelength laser diode.
In the micrograph above you can see the die inside the can. This project focuses specifically on the design and development of the drive electronics in order to safely drive a constant-current load such as this diode, or any LED for that matterand is therefore applicable to all sorts of constant current loads such as LEDs for flashlights.
I would like to make it abundantly clear that I do not advocate the use of these kinds of laser diodes at these power levels since they are extremely dangerous and any mistake will lead to irreversible eye damage. I hope this project will be a good educational resource; please proceed reading responsibly. This project has two main aspects - an integrated, compact, single-PCB platform designed to be mounted on an aluminium extrusion as heat-sinking, and a 12A-capable true constant-current synchronous buck converter.
Power is supplied via two batteries in series, which essentially dictates the size of the product. In this specific scenario, the maximum diode drive current is only 4. I have no way to measure this, and photonic output values are based on tests conducted by others who have characterized this diode with their test setups.
For convenience, I threw on a charging circuit on board, which allows charging of the cells via micro-USB at mA. For most cells, this results in a roughly 1 hour charge time from flat batteries. An Atmel microcontroller handles the entire system for various kinds of events. Here are a few features: Security Safety interlock requiring secret code to be entered via switches before system unlocks, impossible to turn on in a bag Constant current control with 4 programmable power modes Battery monitoring and low voltage cut-off Charge management Error handling and feedback via a total of 5 colourful LEDs For heat-sinking of the diode, the switching regulators, and the battery charger, the entire PCB only has components on one-side, with exposed ground pads on the bottom.
This PCB is then screwed onto a milled aluminium baseplate. Some folks have suggested that the 'red copper' diode host doesn't have great heatsinking capabilities.
To prevent shorts, holes are milled into the baseplate for through-hole legs to sit in. A kapton sheet was then laser-cut to insulate the PCB from the baseplate, and thermal paste was then applied to the exposed ground copper pads for contact with the baseplate. A cutout in the PCB allows the diode, housed in a solid copper mount, to be attached directly to the baseplate from the bottom.Forums New posts Search forums.

Joined Jun 24, Messages 5, Points They will do 7W easy and can push past 8W. Efficiency and wavelength tend to be inversely proportional when diodes are binned. Reports from a customer of mine that batch bins them for wavelength is showing wavelength is slightly lower by several nm on average in these new batches closer to nm than the older batches from the previous version which were up around nm. From what I hear they get better reaction near nm with the pospher in the projectors to make green light.
For Clarification There is some confusion that the power difference is 44 vs 47 which is not correct. Also so there is some way to know what you have if you have purchased a NUBM44 from me in the last six months this new version is the diode you have received and a mixed chance for it being either a V1 or V2 version going several months back of that. I mention as I have had a lot of questions about if the diodes ordered recently were the V1 or V2!! Also of note there are a lot of the projectors with the V1 diodes that are being retired by organizations currently and computer shops pulling the blocks of these stockpiles and shipping them off to china or even units being sold as whole in lots to sellers.
