GH16507A2A is Insert Frame Structure, Red Laser Diode for DVD Video Player (654nm-7mW).

A laser diode is a semiconductor device that emits coherent light through a process called stimulated emission. It is a type of diode that converts electrical energy directly into light energy, producing a highly focused and intense beam of light.

The basic structure of a laser diode consists of a semiconductor material, typically gallium arsenide (GaAs) or indium gallium arsenide phosphide (InGaAsP). The diode has two layers – an n-type (negative) layer and a p-type (positive) layer – forming a junction known as a p-n junction.
