abstract

Color constancy and color maintenance are key issues in the context of the utilization of light-emitting diodes (LEDs) for general lighting applications. For a systematic approach to improve the white light quality of phosphor converted LEDs and to fulfill the demands for color temperature reproducibility and constancy, it is imperative to understand how compositional, optical and thermal properties of the color conversion elements (CCE), which typically consist of a phosphor particles embedded in a transparent matrix material, affect the correlated color temperature of a white LED source. Based on a combined optical and thermal simulation procedure, in this contribution we give a comprehensive discussion on the underlying coherences of light absorption, quantum efficiency and thermal conductivity and deduce some strategies to minimize the temperature increase within the CCE in order to maintain acceptable color variations upon device operation. © (2012) COPYRIGHT Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE).
