Laser-activated remote phosphor conversion with ceramic phosphors
Direct laser activation of a remote phosphor, or LARP, is a highly effective approach for producing very high luminance solid-state light sources. Such sources have much smaller étendue than LEDs ofExpand

Q-switched diode-pumped Nd:YAG rod laser with output power of 420W at 532nm and 160W at 355nm
Intra-cavity harmonic generation in diode-pumped Q-switched Nd:YAG rod lasers is a preferred architecture to generate high output power at 532nm and 355nm in multimode operation. We have developed aExpand
