860nm VCSEL - High Powered
Finisar has developed a 2D VCSEL array TO based component that is specifically targeted towards use in gesture recognition and 3D camera applications. This specific product is packaged in a TO-46 can with a 2D VCSEL that is capable of delivering more than 500mW of CW power at room temperature. The intended use is with short electrical pulses (<10ns) and low duty cycle (<1%) where peak powers can reach 10W. In pulsed operation, the 2D array emits a Gaussian shaped optical beam and is capable of rise and fall times less than 1ns.
