Abstract

Without any doubt remote phosphor type of light-emitting diodes (LEDs) are gaining popularity in all kinds of solid-state lighting applications. Main reasons are the high luminous efficiency in comparison with proximate phosphor type of LED devices and the improved spatial color uniformity due to internal photon scattering. Optical properties of a high-power white LED are highly dependent on the power and the temperature of the diode junction and phosphor. For a remote phosphor type of LED module, junction and phosphor temperature can be very different. The effect of excitation light density, junction temperature, and ambient temperature on phosphor heating has therefore been studied. Results have been used to determine the effective quantum efficiency of remote phosphors as a function of phosphor temperature and pump light density.
