ESD Level : LD Handling Precautions

Handling Precautions

1) Since the ESD level is very low compared with other discrete products, excessive light emission occurs when a surge enters in the forward direction, the end face breaks, and laser oscillation stops.

2) It must be handled so as not to touch the end face which functions as a mirror.
(In other discrete products, it is common to use the end face as a 'dicing margin'.)
