Audi Debuts US Laser Light

Nov 2016
HERNDON, Va., Nov. 15, 2016 — Audi of America Inc. has debuted its first U.S. production laser light on its 2017 Audi R8 V10 Plus Exclusive Edition vehicle.

The R8 utilizes full LED headlights, which are supplemented by a laser high beam module in each headlight with four high-intensity laser diodes. Each module bundles these diodes into a blue laser beam with a wavelength of 450 nm. A phosphor converter then transforms the blue laser beam into a very bright and pure white light.

The blue light signature and laser beam pattern, active at speeds of 40 mph and above, supplement the LED high beam and greatly enhance driving visibility by projecting a low and wide beam of light on the road ahead.

Audi is a manufacturer of German-engineered luxury vehicles.
