    Default Constant vs Pulse?

    What exactly does this refer to in laser diodes? The beam will be constant/pulse? as in, the beam will visibly go dim and bright?

    thanks for any answers, i am new!

    Pulsing is turning it on and off very rapidly. It allows higher power during the pulse because of the short duration. Sort of like quickly putting your hand in a flame and removing it before it gets burnt.
