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.
