I have this fiber coupled laser diode. And its specs given as:
But the datasheet also says it used this particular diode. And the specs are given as:
And the I/V/P curves:
The thing is the first fiber coupled module supposed to be using the TO packaged diode in the second link. But their nominal powers do not match. The first one says its max optical power is 60mW and the second one says 140 mW.
Now I want to use this fiber coupled diode for 50mW optical output in continuous mode(not pulsed). I have a constant current source. What should be the current through the laser diode and its forward voltage drop for 50mW optical output?
