Brighter blue lights for faster communication

Brighter blue lights for faster communication

12/11/2018
​​High-performance blue light-emitting diodes called superluminescent diodes (SLDs) could boost white light and high-speed data transmission. The blue SLD generates speckle-free white light suitable for solid-state lighting when paired with a commercially available luminescent plate. Ultrabright diodes could bring white light-mediated data transmission up to speed. KAUST researchers have developed high-performance blue light-emitting diodes useful for both solid-state lighting and visible light communication. These superluminescent diodes could become primary light sources and make data communication available at the flick of a light switch—including the internet and audio and video entertainment.
