We provide a description on the rapidly expanding capabilities of laser light technology, including 500 - 1000 lumen sources with luminance above 1000 cd/mm2 (more than 10x that of LEDs), and with arrays exceeding 10,000 lumens and with a 5 km beam distance. Additionally, we describe novel fiber delivered and fiber emissive white light sources, with simplified maintenance and enhanced thermal management. Lastly, we present spotlight modules that deliver more than 10 giga-bit per second data rates for LiFi communication applications, as well as spatially dynamic beam control, enabling high precision beam shaping. Such laser light sources have applications in portable, architectural, entertainment, outdoor, and automotive lighting.
