I would like to cool a laser diode, which has maximum thermal power of 1 W (actually according to datasheet should not be higher than 830 mW). The operating temperature range is (25-30) Celsius.
I think that the small 15x15 Peltier 2 V should be sufficient.
I have good contact of the laser diode with an aluminum heatsink. I will also use a heatsink with the warm side of the Peltier.
I have a feeling that the power consumption of the Peltier wont be high. So my question is what could be the estimated power consumption of the 15x15 2V Peltier.
Thanks in advance.
