Abstract

A phosphor-converted light emitting diode with curved remote phosphor layer was obtained in this study. By changing the geometry of the flat remote phosphor layer in a conventional remote phosphor structure, the package extraction efficiency and luminous efficacy of the curved remote phosphor structure was improved by reducing the total internal reflection at the interface of the air and phosphor layer. Ray tracing simulations were performed to analyze the package extraction efficiency of the curved remote phosphor structure. Experimental results showed that the convex remote phosphor structure had high luminous efficacy with high color uniformity. The convex remote phosphor structure would be a suitable structure if the remote phosphor structure is used in lighting applications.
