Advantages & disadvantages of Laser diodes

The advantage of Laser diodes are given below:

  • The Laser diode operates in lower power as compared to other laser.
  • It gives high power output as compared to other lasers.
  • Laser diode is smaller in size as compared to other types of laser.
  • It is easily manufactured in arrays.
  • It is the cheaper device to produce laser output.
  • Laser diode has high efficiency.

Some of the disadvantage of Laser diodes is given below:

  • Laser diode produce more divergent laser beam.
  • They are requires big and costly optics for large source size.
  • It has critical heating problem.
  • They are requires high drive current to drive the large laser pellets.
