Paper Abstract

Since light emitting diodes have undergone a huge development in the last decades, they are achieving a widespread use in almost every activity substituting older light sources. The properties of the light emitting diodes such as their size, efficiency, wavelength of the emitted radiation, among others, have turn these devices into an increasingly applied solution for different applications. Some applications require a proper design of the illumination patterns. Here, it is presented a design solution for the radiation pattern of the light emitting diode using as the approximation the cone equation. Also, a method to design specific irradiance distributions using a certain number of diodes is discussed.
