GaN Laser Diode Based Visible Lighting and Communication


         Blue and Violet GaN Laser diode (LD) based white-lighting and visible light communication (VLC) has been considered for Light Fidelity (LD Li-Fi) in the new era, owing to its improved modulation bandwidth and data transmission rate as compared to the LED based approach. In this talk, versatile white-lighting VLC approaches using phosphor diffused blue LDs and RGB tri-color LDs will be briefly reviewed. The violet and blue blue LD based white-lighting and VLC with QAM-OFDM data format will be compared.
