White Laser speeds-up Li-Fi speed to 100x

Useful in everything from particle physics to data encoding, lasers have proven useful in a multitude of fields since Theodore H. Maiman built the first of such devices in 1960. Interestingly, few people realize that the word “laser” is actually an acronym for “light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation,” and that white lasers have never actually existed — at least, until now. Researchers from Arizona State University have demonstrated that a new kind of semiconductor is able to emit laser across the entire visible light spectrum, unlocking a potential in lighting and light-based wireless communication.

An LED-based Li-Fi system is approximately 10 times faster than Wi-Fi, whereas one centered on white laser can reaches performance levels of 10 to 100 times faster.
