It uses p-n junction to emit coherent light in which all the waves are at the same frequency and phase.
LED emits light as the consequence of charge carriers recombination across P-N Junction, while LASER emits light as a result of photons striking the atom and compels them to release the similar photon. A laser works on the principle of stimulated emission and LED works on the principle of Electro-luminance. Thus, in LASER every released photon strike another atom to release similar photon and therefore, the beam of light thus produced is coherent in nature. On the contrary, the light produced by LED is incoherent. The LED is considered as the optical source for various crucial applications.
A laser diode , LD , injection laser diode ILD , or diode laser is a semiconductor device similar to a light-emitting diode in which a diode pumped directly with electrical current can create lasing conditions at the diode's junction. Driven by voltage, the doped p-n-transition allows for recombination of an electron with a hole. Due to the drop of the electron from a higher energy level to a lower one, radiation, in the form of an emitted photon is generated. This is spontaneous emission. Stimulated emission can be produced when the process is continued and further generate light with the same phase, coherence and wavelength. The choice of the semiconductor material determines the wavelength of the emitted beam, which in today's laser diodes range from infra-red to the UV spectrum.
Spectral width is defined as the 3dB optical power width and it is measured in nanometers nm or microns. A bigger spectral width enables higher link bandwidth on the FOC. For an LED the spectral width is about 80 nm when it operates at nm and 40 nm at nm. The spectral width of a LD is 3 nm for operation at nm and 1 nm at nm. They are however slower than Distributed Feedback lasers.
Contemporary white light-emitting diodes LEDs are much more efficient than compact fluorescent lamps and hence are rapidly capturing the market for general illumination. LEDs are also replacing halogen lamps or even newer xenon based lamps in automotive headlamps. Because laser diodes are inherently much brighter and often more efficient than corresponding LEDs, there is great research interest in developing laser diode based illumination systems. Operating at higher current densities and with smaller form factors, laser diodes may outperform LEDs in the future. This article reviews the possibilities and challenges in the integration of visible laser diodes in future illumination systems.

The most significant difference between the LED and diode is that the LED emits the light while the diode allows the current to flow only in one direction and opposes the flow in the opposite direction.Demetrius W. 29.05.2021 at 13:26
