AbstractWhite light solid-state lighting (SSL) is conventionally based on light-emitting diodes (LEDs). Lately, laser diodes (LDs) have been proposed as a replacement due to their higher device efficiencies; however, laser radiation and eye-safety are always a concern. Superluminescent diodes (SLDs) bring together low coherency and high power, high efficiency and low speckle density, offering an alternative to both LEDs and LDs. Our work compares LED, LD and SLD, and demonstrates high-speed visible light communications and high-quality white light based on c-plane InGaN SLD, constituting a viable innovation for the lighting industry and for the adoption of blue SLD for commercial applications.
