Line Laser Diode Beam Dimensions

Post by guercimj »

In the description of item 1057, it says the beam has a spread of 120 degrees which results in a 150mm wide beam at 50mm. One of the numbers must be off or rounded, as this places the focal point outside of the diode body. What are the correct numbers?

The beam spread figures are approximate since there is no hard cutoff. The beam intensity gradually fades out at the extremes.
