Paper Abstract

The concept of an LED-based source with high lumen density is described. It contains a luminescent rod in which LED light is converted to light with a longer wavelength that is extracted from a small face of the rod. The fundamental limitations and possibilities are discussed, as well as the constituents needed. Results are shown for two realized high lumen density sources. A source with YAG:Ce as phosphor is extensively characterized and the results are compared to modeling results. A source with an optimized green emitting phosphor is used for projection. With 64 pump LEDs at 490 W peak electrical input and 50% duty cycle, a peak luminous flux of 18000 lm and a peak luminance of over 1000 cd/mm2 is obtained, with an efficacy of 37 peak lm/W.
