Abstract

Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) are causing big changes in the automotive lighting field. Optical systems with LEDs can use a plastic lens, which means almost all shapes can be made through plastic injection molding. Already, some car manufacturers are adopting this technology in their designs to express their own identities to customers. However, to use this technology, an important defect has to be overcome, which is color aberration near the cutoff line of the low-beam. In this paper, the criteria for measuring the color coordinates are established and simulations for axial color aberration in the plastic lens are carried out.
