Laser Diode Drivers (Pulsed Voltage)

Pulsed voltage laser diode drivers require a resistance in series with the device under test (usually a diode) in order to limit the current. The output current is then defined by an equation similar to IOUT = (VPULSER - VDIODE) / (RSERIES + RDIODE). Although this introduces a small dependence on VDIODE, much faster rise times can be achieved with this approach than with true pulsed constant current instruments.

To choose a laser diode driver:

Avtech can often customize pulse parameters and socketing to meet particular requirements.
