PLS prototypes to date utilize only ~1W-2W laser diode sources, as limited by power of available laser diodes. The extended tests and thermal studies of the MMM however show that operation at up to 100°C with e.g. 4W CW power could be safely run for at least 10000 hours, even with MEMS mirrors with a simple aluminum coating (no protection or enhancement layers).
