Highly Reliable High Power Diode Laser for Laser Radar Application 2004-01-1594

In 1997, we have applied laser technology to the world's first practical adaptive cruise control (ACC) system. The ACC system is based on 2-dimensional scanning laser-radar-sensor technology that is supported by highly reliable high power diode laser. Now, we have developed 34W output power multiple-quantum-well (MQW) diode laser. The power of 870nm near IR diode laser is twice as high as conventional one, thus it meets the strong needs for robust detection of the reflective laser beams from the moving vehicle ahead. Furthermore, Au-Sn-Ni a new alloy solder has been employed to sustain high degree of vibration and thermal shock to raise reliability. The acceleration life-tests at high temperature pulsed operation demonstrate the high reliability of developed 34W high power diode laser.
