Paper Abstract

We report on the development of (AlGaIn)N quantum well LEDs covering the 380 to 430 nm wavelength range, which serve as the primary light source for tri-phosphor luminescence conversion white LEDs. Epitaxial layer growth was performed by low-pressure metal-organic chemical vapor deposition on sapphire substrates. Mesa LEDs were fabricated and either mounted in standard epoxy-based 5 mm radial LED packages or flip-chip bonded on ceramic submounts. Then, LED-chips with peak wavelengths matching the absorption spectrum of an appropriately chosen inorganic tri-phosphor blend, were used for the fabrication of single-chip tri-color luminescence conversion white LEDs. These de-vices allowed us to demonstrate the feasibility of the above concept for improved color rendering and tunability.
