SoraaLaser Awarded at Lightfair International

SoraaLaser is commercializing a new generation of visible laser sources for specialty lighting, display, and automotive applications.

SoraaLaser is commercializing a new generation of visible laser sources for specialty lighting, display, and automotive applications. SoraaLaser's visible laser light sources are used directly in single color and R-G-B applications, or integrated into laser pumped phosphor architectures. These sources enable applications in a myriad of vertical markets, including: general lighting, automotive headlights, projection displays, defense pointers & illuminators, biomedical instrumentation & therapeutics, and industrial material processing & imaging applications.

As an independent spin-off from Soraa Inc. (LED lighting), SoraaLaser was founded by several leading global pioneers in solid-state lighting, including Dr. Shuji Nakamura, 2014 Nobel Laureate in Physics, Dr. Steve Denbaars, Dr. James Raring, and Dr. Paul Rudy. SoraaLaser operates fabrication facilities in California's Silicon Valley and Santa Barbara, CA.

Laser Chip

SoraaLaser technology incorporates an innovative semi-polar GaN laser technology, creating industry-leading performance and reliability. SoraaLaser has a robust intellectual property portfolio, including over 500 patents. Additional information is available at www.SoraaLaser.com .
