Date Announced: 07 Jul 2010
Nichia Corpopration has succeeded in developing a green GaN-based laser diode, [and] will start its shipment from August. We confirmed an estimated life time of 10,000 hours with the condition of 50mW in continuous-wave operation at a 60°C case temperature.
Our developed green semiconductor laser diode has some advantages such as small power consumption, small volume, high efficiency, and low cost compared with conventional light sources applied for pico projectors. We will do the best for the development and the mass production of the semiconductor laser for the projector.
