Paper Abstract

The ThinGaN® technology of OSRAM Opto semiconductors enables high power LEDs with wall plug efficiencies of currently up to 50%, enabling efficacies of > 100lm/W for white and green LEDs. The good scalability of the technology enables devices which deliver high luminous flux. The future limitations regarding efficacy of white LED can be estimated to be 150lm/W for high color rendering. Besides efficiency long term stability and high temperature capability are requirements for market adoption
