LED Inventor Bets on Lasers to Replace LEDs

Dr. Shuji Nakamura, co-founded SoraaLaser an independent spin-off from Soraa Inc, says laser diodes are the future of lighting – and have compelling advantages over LED. Because the laser light is focused to a small spot on the phosphor and converted to white light, the SoraaLaser light sources enable safe, highly collimated white light output, ‘vastly superior’ optical control with miniature optics and reflectors, along with high efficiency fiber optic transport and glare-free waveguide delivery. The company says initial markets will be in applications such as architectural, hospitality, retail, security, entertainment, and automotive. Laser lighting is already used for automobile headlamps at BMW and Audi, because the laser diode’s efficiency is ten times higher than that of the LED headlamp. http://luxreview.com/article/2016/02/led-inventor-bets-on-lasers-to-replace-leds
