April 11, 2023 – Mouser Electronics, Inc., the industry’s leading New Product Introduction (NPI) distributor with the widest selection of semiconductors and electronic components™, is now stocking the Metal Can® TO56 PLT5 522FA_P green laser diode from ams OSRAM. This device provides a highly efficient radiation source for continuous wave and pulsed operation for industrial automation, 3D sensing, and gesture recognition and is optimized for life-science applications, such as digital diagnostic devices.

The ams OSRAM Metal Can® TO56 PLT5 522FA_P green laser diode produces a 514 nm (±1 nm) typical emission wavelength with 50 mW optical output power. Featuring thermally stabilized optics in a hermetically sealed 5.6 mm diameter TO56 Metal Can package, the PLT5 522FA_P green laser diode offers high-modulation bandwidth in a single-mode semiconductor laser for reliable and maintenance-free operation.

The ams OSRAM Metal Can TO56 PLT5 522FA_P green laser diode’s excellent beam pointing accuracy and compact size improves high-density designs with better signal-to-noise ratio and optimized wavelengths. A 6 V typical operating voltage and -20°C to +60°C operating temperature range offer high performance in a low power package, providing an ideal alternative to expensive argon-ion laser devices.

Depending on the mode of operation, the PLT5 522FA_P green laser diode emits highly concentrated visible and non-visible light, which can be hazardous to the human eye. Products that incorporate this device must follow the safety precautions given in IEC 60825-1.

Applications for the PLT5 522FA_P green laser diode include confocal microscopy, spectroscopy, diagnostics for viruses, DNA sequencing and forensic analysis.
