Unlike in a CRT, the phosphor will be fluorescing when stimulated by the
laser. In a traditional CRT light is principally generated by
phosphorescence, a process whose "off" stage follows a Poisson
distribution (which someone who's set up a CRT based telecine will know
Fluorescing is a _much_ faster process, so the response time will be
very fast. That said, without help from a little afterglow they'll need
to scan that laser pretty fast to make sure the picture doesn't flicker.
