Paper Abstract

Commercial white solid state lighting consists of a blue light emitting diodes (LEDs) that excites a yellow-emitting phosphor powder, which is encapsulated with epoxy on top of the LED die. In this paper, we present the results of replacing the epoxy, with a promising new material, a deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA)-based biopolymer. Using this DNA-biopolymer as the host, has shown the potential for improving both the brightness and color of the light output.
