Home > Press > JMAR Receives Order for BriteLight™ Laser Master Oscillator for 3D Air-Breakdown Imagery Display

JMAR Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB:JMAR), a leading developer of advanced laser, high-resolution imaging and photonics technologies, announced today the sale of a BriteLight laser master oscillator to the Japanese National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) for the generation of laser plasma used in 3-dimensional, air suspension advertisements. Delivery to AIST in Japan is scheduled for July 31, 2007.

JMAR Receives Order for BriteLight™ Laser Master Oscillator for 3D Air-Breakdown Imagery Display

San Diego, CA | Posted on May 15th, 2007

AIST first visited JMAR's laser laboratory in May, 2006 to explore the feasibility of the BriteLight's laser power, brightness, and repetition rates working in conjunction with AIST's galvanometers and control software. Based on those positive results, in a test-before-buy decision and in collaboration with Burton Inc. (Japan), AIST leased a BriteLight laser from JMAR for use in their demonstration at SIGGRAPH2006, held in Boston last August. This exposition showcased the "True 3D Display" technology, successfully drawing several plasma-dot motion figures in mid-air. Following SIGGRAPH 2006, AIST/Burton received multiple offers from the graphics and entertainment industries, including Universal Studios and the Walt Disney Company, to participate in the next technology forum the "Best of SIGGRAPH."

"The integration of our patented laser technology with AIST/Burton's 3D air-breakdown display technology is synergistic in every sense," stated Neil Beer, CEO and president of JMAR. "To fully appreciate this technical achievement, you must witness firsthand the demonstration of objects suspended in mid-air, drawn with high-rep plasma dots, creating figures such as butterflies in motion as well as text."

While full market potential is not yet known, the AIST team of scientists and engineers is pursuing numerous applications, including the opportunity that vanishing billboard space in Japan may lead to plasma dot advertising as the wave of the future.
