Laser diodes are the most basic part of the laser. They determine the color, power, and divergence. Their power is measured in mw, which stands for milliwatts, they come in several common wavelengths, as well as a few exotic ones too.

Shape

There are 3 main shapes of diode:

Can/Open Can

C-mount

VECSEL

There are 3 common can sizes.

3.8mm(TO-38)

5.6mm(TO-18)

9mm(TO-5)

Manufacturers

There are several manufacturers of laser diodes.

Casio

Mitsubishi

Nichia

Oclaro

Efficiency

Some diodes are more efficient than others meaning that they put out more light relative to the input power.
