Abstract

This paper describes the application of phosphor-based light conversion for its use in optogenetic experiments to tailor the wavelength of light emitted from implantable miniaturized light sources. Gallium-nitride-based blue light-emitting diodes are used in combination with orthosilicate phosphor immersed in an epoxy matrix and emitting in the yellow wavelength range. The miniaturization of the phosphor-containing polymer droplets toward diameters as small as 300 μm provides the compatibility with implantable optical probes. The parameter study applied here varied the concentration of the phosphor material in the polymer matrix as well as the droplet height in order to tailor the characteristics of blue-to-yellow light conversion.
