A high-ower miniature prototype BrightLase Red-Green-Blue "RGB" laser from QPC Lasers ( http://www.QPClasers.com ) miniature projectors in the 100 lumens output region for portable handheld consumer electronics.
The fully integrated RBG laser offers advantages to consumer electronics manufacturers including expanded color gamut for an exceptionally bright visual experience, low power consumption, an ultra compact footprint, and is designed for low cost high volume manufacture. QPC offers visible laser technologies designed to be compatible with the leading micro-display technology including LCOS, scanning micro-mirrors, DLP and LCD.
"Advances in electronics technology provide hand-held consumer products such as PDAs with incredible computing and communications power," said Dr. Jeffrey Ungar, President and CEO of QPC Lasers. "Unfortunately, the small size and poor resolution of typical 2" display screens makes their use for applications such as Internet browsing, games and video sharing a frustrating experience," said Dr. Ungar.
"Mating consumer electronics with powerful projectors powered by compact, powerful Red-Green-Blue lasers offers a way around this bottleneck," he d. "We believe that our BrightLase technology is a vehicle uniquely suited to making this dream a reality, and expect the exceptional brightness, efficiency, compactness and low cost of these lasers to provide compelling advantages in displays for PDAs, games, laptops, automobiles, and aircraft."
