Laser Lighting Trial Starting in China

For perhaps the first time in the world, trials taking place in China next month will use lasers for street lighting, an innovation aimed at saving energy and eliminating the cost of expensive cabling infrastructure. David Ho and the Jinjing Co. have developed the new lighting technology in the city of Fuzhou in China’s southeastern Fujian Province. Trials will start next month in the nearby city of Fuqing. The technology uses laser beams of blue light to transmit energy across large distances without power lines. The beams strike devices that use quantum-induced materials to transform the laser energy into light for illumination. While automakers such as Mercedes-Benz and BMW are already using a similar technology for car headlights, the trial in China is aimed at developing applications for street and highway lighting as well as environments not readily accessible to a power grid. http://www.eetimes.com/document.asp?doc_id=1332182
