500mW Lasers

What are 500mW Lasers?

500mW Lasers refer to any type of laser that designates 500mW of average output power can have either CW (continuous wave) or pulsed output. CW Lasers are always defined in average output power. Pulsed Lasers with an output power defined in Watts or Milliwatts usually define the laser’s average power, not the peak power of the laser.

500mW lasers are synonymous with half watt laser and 0.5W lasers. These terms can be used interchangeably.

Our 500mW Laser Products

RPMC offers a wide range of laser types emitting 500mW of average output power, split up into categories such as single emitter laser diodes, laser diode modules (LD modules), volume Bragg grating (VBG) laser diodes, vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) diodes, quantum cascade laser (QCL) diodes, multi-wavelength laser combiners, CW DPSS lasers, pulsed DPSS lasers, and fiber amplifiers.
