SoraaLaser presents laser diodes for Lighting
Company to show innovative solid-state laser light sources at Strategies In Light Conference
SoraaLaser, a spin-off from the LED company Soraa, will present its visible laser light source technology at the Strategies in Light conference this week in Santa Clara, California.
"Laser diodes are droop-free, and can be combined with phosphors to safely produce highly directional output with superior delivered lumens per watt compared to other light sources," said company co-found the Nobel Laureate Shuji Nakamura. "Laser diodes are lighting's future."
SoraaLaser's visible laser light sources are based on its proprietary and patented semi-polar GaN laser diodes, combined with advanced phosphor technology. The source is focused to a small spot on the phosphor and converted to white light, to provide highly collimated white light output. Optical control uses miniature optics and reflectors, along with fibre optic transport and glare-free waveguide delivery, according to the company.
These laser light sources are said to provide novel properties compared with other light sources by combining the benefits of solid-state illumination such as minimal power consumption and long lifetime, with the highly directional output that has been possible only with legacy technology.
These features are said to be ideal for specialty lighting applications including architectural, hospitality, retail, security, entertainment, and automotive.
