New 10mW Green Laser Diode

ProPhotonix has added a new low power green laser diode from Osram to its product range. This post reviews the benefits of the new PLT5 510 laser diode, outlines its features and provides examples of the types of applications for which it is suitable.

Green Laser Diode

Since Osram introduced direct emission green laser diodes to its range, it has offered a competitive, compact alternative to traditional Diode Pumped Solid State (DPSS) laser diodes for a wide range of applications. With the PLT5 510, Osram now offers a competitive solution for low power applications. With the this low power green laser diode, Osram has provided laser diode users with a cost effective alternative to red low power laser diodes.

PLT5 510 Features

With an output power of 10mW at 515-530nm, this green laser diode addresses applications such as targeting, display, biomedical applications and metrology.

In addition to its compact TO56 package, the PLT5 510 incorporates a photodiode, offering improved reliability and stability of the output.


Users will now have the ability to achieve improved visibility to the human eye at equivalent power levels or reduce power consumption, compared with red lasers, in lower power applications.

With more than 20 years’ experience in supplying high quality laser diodes for a wide range of applications, ProPhotonix is well positioned to provide the technical support to assist you in selecting the optimum laser diode for your application.
