Paper Abstract

A highly reliable laser light engine (LLE) employing a novel glass-based phosphor-converted layer is experimentally demonstrated. The LLE module consisted of a blue light laser array and a color wheel, which included two glass-based phosphor-converted layers of yellow YAG:Ce and green LuAG:Ce and a micro motor. The blue light laser array was used to excite the color wheel to create yellow and green lights. The combination of the blue, yellow, and green lights produced high-purity white light for use in LLEs. The glass-based LLE exhibited better thermal stability, higher luminous efficiency of 64.7lm/W(YAG:Ce) and 67.2lm/W (LuAG:Ce), and higher purity of 95.4%(YAG:Ce) and 77.4%(LuAG:Ce). This study clearly demonstrates the advantages of adapting novel glass as a phosphor-converted color wheel in LEL modules that provide higher reliability and better performance of laser projectors for use in the next generation LLEs, particularly in the area where the conventional LLEs employing silicone-based phosphor fails to stand for long and strict reliability is highly required.
