Patent Number: 6,332,721

Title: Laser diode module

Abstract: An LD module is provided in having an LD light source having a CAN package structure in which an LD chip is incorporated with an LD preservation gas, an optical fiber on one end of which a convex fiber lens for condensing light is formed, and a lens system for coupling placed between the LD light source and the convex fiber lens, wherein the lens system is constituted to be capable of forming an image by condensing the LD light from the LD chip, and wherein the convex fiber lens is located so that a focal point coincides with the image forming point of the LD light. According to the LD module of the invention, the light coupling efficiency between the LD chip and the optical fiber can be improved without losing the life span reliability of the LD chip having a CAN package structure.
