Laser diodes are very susceptible to performance degradation or catastrophic damage caused by over heating. Over heating can destroy the device under test or reduce its lifetime significantly. Peltier coolers, temperature sensors, and TEC controllers provide the three basic building blocks to control the temperature of a semiconductor laser. This application note by ILX Lightwave provides an overview of these basic building blocks: Themoeclectric controlling the temperature of lasers »
