＋English Summary on This Page
Tech Venture with High Laser Diode Technology
QD Laser, launched in 2006 as a spin-off venture of Fujitsu Laboratories, develops, manufactures and sells products utilizing laser technologies. Laser is a principle to emit an artificial light with electromagnetic waves amplified in resonators or a light that is emitted using this principle. Lasers are classified into several types in accordance with the medium that emits the laser beam, and QD Laser handles laser diodes as its business field.
QD Laser conducts the laser device business, which manufactures and sells laser diode products, and the laser eyewear business, which develops eyewear products utilizing the world’s first retinal projection technology.
The company has been disclosing its business results since the fiscal year ended March 2016, but with the increasing trend of the investment burden of the laser eyewear business, its ordinary loss is on an increasing trend.
Laser Device Business
For the laser device business, the company conducts manufacturing and sales of laser diode products as well as accepting entrustment of research and development of basic technologies from research institutes and light source development for new applications from manufacturers. The laser device business accounts for 95.7% of the net sales for the first half of the fiscal year ending March 2021, and most of the net sales are from manufacturing and sales of laser diode products.
Laser Eyewear Business
The laser eyewear business, which accounts for 4.3% of the net sales for the first half of the fiscal year ending March 2021, conducts product development and manufacturing of eyewear type displays utilizing retinal projection technology using a laser (retinal scanning type laser eyewear).
Retinal scanning type laser eyewear is a product that directly projects images from ultrasmall laser projectors built into the eyewear frame to the retina and enables the wearer to view images and digital information. As it enables the wearer to view these without requiring the wearer’s eyesight or ability to adjust focus, it is used as visual aid equipment for people with bad eyesight or some people with social blindness.
