Laser diodes - The next wave of LED lighting development?

Laser diodes to be the next LED lighting development - Is this possible and how feasible it is to our real life general lighting application?

Theoretically, if we place 2 mirrors on each side of the LED, the wide beam light throw effect from the LED will be forced to reflect internally within the 2 mirrors resulting in a more focused light beam.

This might mean that we need to create a light path for the LED in order to achieve the effect. This would be similar then to using fiber optic as a light guide.

All in all, can lasers replace LED Lighting? In my own opinion, i doubt so as general lighting requires a wide coverage at the lowest possible power input. Lasers will not be able to achieve an even wide coverage.

  2. LED's became the first choice for lighting when the came, laser diodes are now taking place and provide more beautiful lighting than LEDs. I would also recommend laser doides over LED's.
