Paper Abstract

Solid state lighting offers a lot of novel prospects for tomorrows customized lighting solutions. None the less, to compete with and to surpass the performance of the traditional lighting systems, design and development of LED light sources is still facing the necessity of further improvements, in particular with respect to device efficiency and light control. In this contribution we discuss recent developments and novel strategies in order to improve the light extraction efficiency as well as to affect the directionality of the light emitted from high power LEDs. In order to be up to characterize these modifications with high spatial resolution, novel characterization techniques, like the implementation of a confocal principle into the measurement set-up are discussed.
