At InfoComm, I had a chance to visit with Osram GmbH (Munich, Germany) in their suite in the Peabody Hotel to discuss the Phaser. I visited with Dr. Jürgen Müller, Manager, R&D Projection Light Engines, and several of his colleagues. I was lucky they had time to meet with me since most of the time they were discussing the new Phaser technology with potential customers.
"Phaser" derives from "Phosphor" and "Laser" and the technology is Osram's entry into the growing market for hybrid projectors with laser/phosphor light sources. The Phaser P1 I was shown was a prototype of the first Phaser product and had spaces for 32 blue lasers in a 4 x 8 array, from Osram Opto-Semiconductors, of course. Not all laser locations were populated in the demo. The lasers are focused on a phosphor wheel that has red and green phosphor segments on it, plus a slot to transmit the blue laser light. This blue light is re-routed internal to the Phaser to emerge with the red and green light.
