Abstract

This study investigates white light emitting diodes (LEDs), packaged with an omnidirectional reflector (ODR) and UV LED of 378‚ÄČnm. The current work designs an ODR to solve the problems of UV leak and low phosphors conversion efficiency with a thin film structure of S/(HLH)n/air modified from a quarter-wave stack. Since an ODR is a perfect dielectric mirror for UV light, the UV leak can be eliminated and recycled to enhance phosphors conversion efficiency. By measuring the emission spectrum of a white LED with an ODR, the orientation distribution of the color properties, and the radiation power, the current study did not detect any UV leak. The average luminous intensity enhancement is 15%.
