Green phosphor-converted LEDs using a blue pump InGaN diodes have advantages over the direct green InGaN LED with regards to color stability with drive and/or temperature. Added manufacturing steps are outweighed by higher color yield, as a range of pump colors can be used without changing the final chromaticity. The conversion losses can be smaller than the decrease in wall-plug efficiency from blue towards green, which has been reported by many sources. A distinct disadvantage of the concept is due to only one color and phosphor proven - SrGa2S4:Eu2+ and 535 nm peak wavelength.© (2002) COPYRIGHT SPIE--The International Society for Optical Engineering.
