Arizona State Researchers Demonstrate White Lasers, Which Could Revolutionize Everyday Lighting

Researchers at Arizona State University have created white laser light with an array of semiconductor lasers in a compact arrangement. The project helps pave the way toward better lighting and light-based wireless communication, as white lasers are more luminous and energy efficient than LEDs. ASU researchers created a novel nanosheet — a thin layer of […]
