Paper Abstract

The properties of several solid state lighting phosphor compounds have been enhanced through the application of advanced material processing and particle encapsulation techniques. Also higher light extraction efficiencies from the pump LED were achieved by index-matching the refractive index of the phosphor to that of the InGaN chip. New solid-state- reaction protocols have produced a significant increase in the intrinsic efficiency of the orthosilicate yellow phosphor compared to the traditional YAG:Ce phosphor. In addition, the stability of phosphor materials in high humidity environments was increased significantly using metal oxide coatings applied by vapor deposition.
