The world's first high luminance, fully integrated white laser light emitter enables ultra-long beam distances, narrow beam angles and small optic sizes. The combination of luminance, size, efficacy and lifetime exceeds the capabilities of typical LEDs or HID light sources by more than 100x. For the first time, designers of solid-state applications have access to a unique performance enabler for directional lighting.
SLD’s LaserLight technology combines high luminance white with infrared emission from the same point source in a safe dual channel SMD. A major breakthrough for specialty lighting and automotive providing a compact multifunctional light source that enables the next generation of smart applications.
More than 100x the luminance of typical LED, LaserLight SMD delivers 500 lumens of white light and 1,000 candela per square mm output from a miniature 7mm surface mount device (SMD) lighting package.
Beam angles of 2 degrees or lower are achieved with optics of less than 35 mm in diameter, well within convenient lighting system form factors.
Efficacy of the light output remains roughly constant as power is driven higher, due to the droop-free operation with increasing power.
Additional technology can be added downstream from LaserLight modules to electronically control and dynamically change the beam angle and shape.
Brighter than HID lamps or LEDs with the world's highest luminance from a single light source.
More precise than LED with narrower beam angles and smaller optics.
Fewer replacements over a lifetime drastically reduce maintenance costs over HID.
Miniature size enables unique design opportunities with smaller form factors.
Dual channel, switchable white light and infrared emission.
Portable and multifunctional for night vision or range finding.
The SLD Laser reflective system uses a high-powered blue laser to illuminate a phosphor resulting in safe, bright white light.
A laser produces a beam of high intensity blue light.
The phosphor converts the laser light to broad-spectrum, incoherent white light, eliminating laser eye-safety risk.
