Title: R&D100: LED Pulser

A Sandia National Laboratories' light emitting diode (LED) driver is generating light pulses with shorter duration higher repetition frequency and higher brightness than anything on the market. The Sandia LED Pulser uses custom electronic circuitry to drive high-power LEDs to generate short, bright, high frequency light pulses. A single device can emit up to four different colors - each with independent pulse timing - crucial for light-beam forming in many optical applications and is more economical than current light sources such as lasers.
