iSLight, a spin-out company from Tyndall, has developed ground-breaking speckle free, surface-emitting blue SLEDs (high power blue superluminescent LEDs).
This newly developed technology has world record-breaking peak optical power, with extremely high-resolution beam quality. This is significant, as it offers advanced solutions for numerous applications including:
- Machine inspection instruments
- Direct imaging lithography
- VR/AR headsets
- Projection displays
- Microscopy imaging systems
- Lighting systems
- 3D printing
iSLight provides speckle-free sources with more compact and lower production cost than commercial lasers maintaining similar power density and efficiency. This cutting-edge technology increases the definition and quality of projected light images, with high efficiency. While the iSLight SLEDS are currently blue (400-450nm), it can also scale to other wavelengths (green, red, infrared).
iSLight uses a patented design in photonic devices to engineer SLEDs with:
- Scalable and high optical power
- Wader scale process (low production cost)
- Compact modules
- Ultrashort light pulses
The iSLight team will be attending the world’s largest photonics technologies event, SPIE Photonics West, in San Francisco from Tuesday 31 January to Thursday 2 February at Booth 4645.
The team will be there to demonstrate and discuss this pioneering technology. Be sure to visit the team or get in touch in advance to arrange a meeting.
