Clear view for autonomous cars - Osram heralds new generation of infrared lasers for LiDAR
Special chip design takes wavelength stability of edge emitters to a new level
Thanks to the newly developed chip design, edge-emitting lasers can match and even exceed the wavelength stability of VCSELs at operating temperatures of up to 125°C typical for automotive applications. This technological milestone in the development of infrared lasers allows the use of a much smaller wavelength filter on the detector - which significantly improves the signal-to-noise ratio. This technological advance has already been demonstrated in components with "triple-junctions," e.g. three light-emitting surfaces stacked one on top of the other. In future, it will be used in all Osram infrared lasers and offer enormous advantages to LiDAR system manufacturers.
