Z-Laser

The ZM18S3, ZM18H3, and ZM18DM53

Z-Laser now provides more powerful versions of its ZM18 – the ZM18S3, ZM18H3, and ZM18DM53. New driver electronics offer significantly improved power stability over the whole temperature range.

The future ZM18H3 series provides a new standard: blue and green emitting laser diodes come now with an Automatic Power Control (APC). A temperature-related performance increase or decrease, as well as degradation over the lifetime can reliably be excluded.
