Abstract

Efficient and very-compact projectors embedded into mobile consumer-electronic devices, such as handsets, media players, gaming consoles, and GPS units, will enable new consumer use and industry business models. A keystone component for such projectors is a green laser that is commensurately efficient and compact. A synthetic green-laser architecture is described that can achieve efficiencies of 15%. The architecture consists of an infrared distributed Bragg reflector laser coupled into a second-harmonic-generation device for conversion to green.
