Laser Diode 400-500nm
Naked laser diode with no collimator or other beam forming optics.

Higher data rates required higher data storage devices. The development of BluRay burner and player brought 405nm laser diodes to the marked which were at first also used in laser display systems. Due to the bad visibility and more purple than blue color the 405nm diodes were not ideal for RGB show laser systems.

The need for higher-powered light sources in the video projectors led to the development of laser diodes in the range of 440-460nm designed for retrofitting (together with high powered LEDs) old light bulbs. They also fit perfectly for laser display systems.

While single-mode diodes are often used in scientific applications (f.e. DNA sequencing), multi-mode diodes offer higher powers. Together with beam correction optics, they reach quite good beam characteristics ideal for laser displays, laser engraving or exposure-systems.
