QuickSwitch® Pulsed Laser Diodes

These unique 905 nm pulsed laser diodes generate the shortest pulse duration worldwide for devices of this type. Developed and manufactured by Laser Components Canada, the QuickSwitch® PLDs are made for fast and reliable laser-based distance measurement applications (LiDAR) and scanners for security and aerospace use.

PLD, high current switch and charge storage capacitor are enclosed in a compact TO56 housing. The high current loop is fully integrated into the housing, which is also equipped with an additional ground pin independent from both the signal and supply returns. This results in a Faraday cage effectively protecting the QuickSwitch® and its surroundings from electromagnetic interference.
