  • For the large driving current of high-power semiconductor Laser diodes (LDs), a modified method to measure the electrical derivative of LDs under scanning driving current with variable step length is proposed, which is to achieve the fast and accurate measurement of optical and electrical characteristic parameters of LDs with a relatively small data acquisition. The experimental results show that, with fewer measurements, this method can effectively and accurately measure and extract the LDs corresponding parameters including threshold current (Ith), voltage-current characteristic (V-I), luminous power-current relation (P-I), electrical derivative curve (IdV/dI-I). The wavelet transformation singularity testing results of the threshold current also verify the accuracy, reliability, and advantage of this method.
