Sharp Increasing Brightness

Thanks Joe & Fuzzie

This supports the Sharp/Foxconn theory. 

That's a lot of Lasers... 

Sharp's 14th issued press release announced that it will start volume production in the beginning of October this year to achieve the industry's highest light output of green laser diode (LD, Laser Diode), with a monthly production target of 500,000. One sample will be shipped in early August this year, and the sample price will be 10,800 yen.

Sharp's green laser diodes, which will be mass-produced, have a light output of 130mW, which is 3.3 times higher than Sharp's current products and has a wavelength of 520nm. The higher the light output, the more vivid the color can be.

Sharp began mass production of green laser diodes in November 2017. At that time, the mass-produced product had a light output of 30 mW and a wavelength of 515 nm. The three primary colors of light are red, blue and green. In addition to the green laser diodes, Sharp also offers red and blue products.

Sharp pointed out that laser diodes can be used as light sources for laser displays such as head-up displays (HUDs) and head mounted displays (HMDs) and their use is continuously expanding.

Nikkei News reported that laser diodes are currently mainly used in projectors. However, under the demand for vehicles and other support, the laser diode market is expected to show a substantial increase in the future. According to Sharp, the market for monitors using laser diodes is about 26 billion yen in 2018, but in the future, such as demand for vehicles, it will increase to 4.45 trillion yen by 2025.
