Diode lasers gets a large variety of wavelengths, also getting superior features of simple structure, compact size, long lifetime, easy modulation, which is widely used in military fields, such as laser-guided tracking, laser radar, laser fuze, laser ranging, laser communication power, laser simulation weapons, laser aiming warning, laser gyroscope etc. Currently, developed countries are attaching great attention to the development and application of high power diode laser systems in military fields.
Diode laser (semiconductor laser) is a type of laser system making use of semiconductor raw material, due to difference in matter structure, producing quite special laser beam in different wavelengths. It is featured by compact structure, light weight, high electro optical conversion efficiency, direct modulation and easy to use etc. In large variety of scientific work fields, it gets wide applications in laser communication, printing plate, optical information processing etc.
Diode lasers gets superior advantages of small size, light weight, high efficiency etc. It has got high attention from the very beginning of its creation, which is widely used in a large variety work fields of industry, military, medical, communication etc. However, due to their limited quantum well waveguide structure, the output power laser beam quality is much weaker than solid-state lasers, CO2 lasers, thus in a certain period, the development of diode laser system is seriously limited.
