Laser diodes are high flux density light sources capable of throwing a clean beam of light over a long distance. This advantage makes laser lighting of particular interest in automotive applications where a high beam with a long penetration distance is desired. Laser diodes emit light through the process of stimulated emission. This mechanism makes it possible to instantly recombine all the charges injected into the quantum region, thus avoiding efficiency droop—a fundamental challenge for LED lighting.
An OLED (organic light emitting diode) produces light when holes and electrons recombine in the organic electroluminescent layer. OLEDs can be deposited on a variety of flexible and rigid substrates to form a luminous panel that produces white light evenly over the complete surface. A white OLED light panel typically contains several layers of red, green and blue emitters that together generate white light with a high color quality.
