A key function of an optoelectronic device is to manipulate light. As a result the packaging and assembly processes for many optoelectronic components can be significantly more complex than traditional microelectronic devices.
Tag - laser diode
A laser diode, (LD), injection laser diode (ILD), or diode laser is a semiconductor device similar to a light-emitting diode in which the laser beam is created at the diode’s junction.
Laser diodes are the most common type of lasers produced, with a wide range of uses that include fiber optic communications, barcode readers, laser pointers, CD/DVD/Blu-ray disc reading/recording, laser printing, laser scanning and light beam illumination.
