Abstract
Increasingly, 3D sensing is becoming a ubiquitous technology – especially in consumer applications. Underlying this trajectory are diode lasers that emit light to measure, examine, and assess the world. There are two diode laser types: vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL), and edge emitters. Each laser with characteristics ideal for specific tasks. Reliability, consistency, and the ability to scale are critical for the demanding consumer markets. Even in the most severe environments – undersea -- diode lasers keep Internet traffic flowing. This presentation will examine diode laser history, recent gaming uses, and current-day gesture and facial recognition for smartphones. Also, promise for autonomous driving.
