Consequently, whereas the "wall-plug efficiency"--what you get out of a laser compared with the energy put into it-for a disk or fiber-type is on the order of 25% (and know that this is really a big gain compared to the efficiencies realized as few as five years ago), the direct-diode laser should have a wall-plug efficiency on the order of 40%.
Working in collaboration with experts from Samsung Electro-Mechanics, the researchers have achieved an 18 percent increase in light output and a 22 percent increase in wall-plug efficiency, which essentially measures the amount of electricity the LED converts into light.
