Peabody, Mass. – October 28th, 2020 SemiNex has won silver honors in the Laser Focus World Innovators Awards through its new Triple Junction laser diode. The SemiNex 1550nm triple junction laser diode enables a 300 meter eye-safe range for LiDAR systems and provides more than 20 times the photons/second than similar LiDAR at 905nm. The triple junction is the best in its class with 3 times the peak power of other 1550nm diodes. It produces more than 80 watts with 1 watt per amp efficiency enabling automotive LiDAR systems to reach 300 meters, allowing for high speed autonomous travel. Devices are available as a bare chip for integration onto existing control boards, standard TO cans and easy integration into range finding applications.
SemiNex Corporation designs and manufactures high-power semiconductor lasers for use in military, medical and industrial applications. SemiNex's unique product designs enable lasers with high powers and improved thermal performance. SemiNex diode technology dramatically lowers the cost per watt of laser power, especially compared to alternate technologies such as solid-state lasers and fiber lasers.
