Laser diodes are extremely sensitive to static electricity, current and voltage transients (spikes), and voltage and current noise. To operate your laser diode with the best performance, the laser diode must be carefully mounted and connected to the control circuitry. The mounts available from Laser 2000 accept the numerous industry standard packages and polarities that are available. In addition, connection cables are available that shield the laser diode from all but the most extreme electric fields.
