A green laser is basically a diode laser. It uses a shorter wavelength of generated radiation (green light spectrum).It is thereby possible to halve the wavelength (532nm) enabling the marking of difficult to inscribe materials when using standard infrared light (1064nm). It is possible to acheive an even shorter wavelength (ultraviolet spectrum) by frequency multiplication. The characteristics of green lasers make it very suitable for the inscription of plastics that have a low content of additives.
Laser emission in the green frequency range presents following advantages:
Green lasers are the most common in the electronics industry.
