GaN-based laser diode technology to bring ‘dynamic beam shaping’ to the mainstream
SoraaLaser will demonstrate its new dynamic laser light source technology at LightFair International, May 9-11, in Philadelphia, PA. These solid-state light sources feature fibre-delivered illumination that can be dynamically tuned from a narrow beam spotlight to a broad floodlight using a smartphone app control.
The visible laser light sources use the company’s proprietary and patented semi-polar GaN laser diodes, combined with advanced phosphor technology, and packaged into ‘lighting friendly’ assemblies.
In the past, dynamic beam shaping could only be accomplished with motors, manual change-out of optics, or the switching on and off of many dozens of LEDs within a large matrix.
Because the laser diodes are focused to a small spot on the phosphor and converted to white light, the SoraaLaser light sources are said to deliver high luminance and enable safe, highly collimated white light output, superior optical control with miniature optics and reflectors, along with high efficiency fibre optic transport and waveguide delivery.
In the last six months, SoraaLaser’s light source technology has received several recognitions, including: 2017 Sapphire Award Finalist, Illumineer of the Year; 2017 PRISM Award Finalist from SPIE Photonics Media; and Inclusion in the 2016 IES Progress Report
