When designing a laser system, the first thing needed is to make decision: design a laser driver or use an off-the-shelf laser driver. Which way is better? Design a Laser Driver vs. Using an Off-the-shelf Laser Driver It is apparent that designing a laser driver will save money in the long run for high volume production laser systems. But the cost for this route is not low: high design cost, long design time, high risk to fail or result in sacrificed performance because designing a good laser dr...(more)

Thermistors are temperature sensing instruments that have a semiconductor material in them. The property of this material is to exhibit a large and precise change in its electrical resistance when subjected to small change in its body temperature. The History The word thermistor comes from the combination of words thermal and resistor. In the year 1833, an English scientist, Michael Faraday first reported having encountered a change of resistance with change in temperature. He noted this in the...(more)

By Gang Liu, Nan Shi, and Hongtao Zhou, Analog Technologies, Inc. Chopping a laser beam is often a necessary practice. For a diode laser, it is much simpler and less costly to chop the beam electrically, rather than mechanically. The output laser beam power, PO, versus the laser diode input current, ILD, characteristics are shown in Fig. 1. Fig. 1 Output Laser Beam Power vs. Laser Input Current In this figure, PO is the optical output power of the laser diode; ILD is the laser diode input curren...(more)
