We report and demonstrate the feasibility of adapting glass as a phosphor-converted layer in laser headlight module, instead of conventional doped silicone that can potentially provide higher reliability and better performance for advanced laser headlight module. A laser headlight module (HLM) consists of blue a high-power laser array, a color phosphor, and an optical micro-lens system. The color phosphor is a key component in the HLM which consists of glass-based yellow phosphor-converted layer. The conversion layer of the yellow Ce:YAG phosphor is bonded on an aluminum substrate. A blue high-power laser array is used to excite the color phosphor and then release yellow light. Then, the combinations of blue and yellow light become white-laser light for use in the HLM. In this study, the fabrication of HLM with the glass-based yellow phosphor-converted layers is presented. The optical performance of the HLM including lumen, lumen efficiency, chromaticity, and transmission is detailed discussion. This study demonstrates the adapting glass as a phosphor-converted color phosphor in the HLMs that provide high-reliability and better performance for use in the new-generation laser headlight module.
