Paper Abstract

We performed the simulation and experiment to investigate the influence of Zirconium dioxide (Zirconia, ZrO2) particles on the optical properties of phosphor converted white LED (pcW-LED). An efficient optical model was developed and applied to the incorporation diffuse particle of ZrO2 into a hemisphere package containing YAG phosphors. The optical properties (chromaticity, packaging efficiency) were estimated as a function of phosphor and ZrO2 particles, through the calculation of effective radius, refractive index, and absorption and conversion efficiency, in a range of correlated color temperature 4500 K to 6500 K. In the same way, the amount of phosphor and ZrO2 can be calculated accurately to obtain a targeted optical property in a hemisphere LED design. Especially, the angular distribution of CCT was also diminished, and even almost inexistent for low CCT design. In addition, the adding of ZrO2 particles allows clearly decreasing the amount of phosphor for an identical target CCT. It is really suitable in the context of decreasing the amount of phosphor or in some applications where the color uniformity is an important parameter, like indoor down-lighting.
