Limitations associated with light emitting diodes (LEDs) operating under high current densities due to the efficiency droop has created a need to look for alternative light sources; here we report investigations on the potential of laser diodes (LDs) for high brightness lighting solutions. High power laser diodes require phosphor targets with certain performance criteria such as high thermal conductivity, efficiency and structural geometry.
Here we examine the possibility of using single crystal YAG:Ce phosphor materials as potential targets for generation of light via laser diodes. We report on the emission properties of the crystals with different sizes and examine the effect of laser beam incident angle incident on crystal target emission.
