Main Question or Discussion Point
Hi there, how one can compute the spectral power distribution of white LED ,i,e like black body radiator that has a formula of calculation..
The wiki article includes the spectrum for a white LED made using RGB LEDs...There are three main methods of mixing colors to produce white light from an LED:
Because of metamerism, it is possible to have quite different spectra that appear white. However, the appearance of objects illuminated by that light may vary as the spectrum varies
- blue LED + green LED + red LED (color mixing; can be used as backlighting for displays)
- near-UV or UV LED + RGB phosphor (an LED producing light with a wavelength shorter than blue's is used to excite an RGB phosphor)
- blue LED + yellow phosphor (two complementary colors combine to form white light; more efficient than first two methods and more commonly used)
