Paper Abstract

Laser displays require red, green and blue (RGB) laser sources each with a low-cost, a high wall-plug efficiency, and a small size. However, semiconductor chips that directly emit green light with sufficient power and efficiency are not currently available on the market. A practical solution to the "green" bottleneck is to employ diode pumped solid state laser (DPSSL) technology, in which a frequency doubling crystal is used. In this paper, recent progress of MgO doped periodically poled lithium niobate (MgO:PPLN) frequency doubling optical chips will be presented. It is shown that MgO:PPLN can satisfy all of the requirements for laser displays and is ready for mass production.
