We proposed an optical model for phosphor-converted white LEDs (pc-WLEDs) that utilized Ce:YAG doped glasses as novel phosphor-converted materials. In this model, precise simulation of the chromatic performance of the glass-based pc-WLEDs was conducted. Between optical simulation and experimental measurement, the color difference Δ<i>E</i> was 1.2%. Meanwhile, the difference of correlated color temperature limited from 1 wt% to 5 wt% phosphor concentration between the simulation and measurement was 184 K. Such a model for glass phosphors will be helpful to design high-power glass-based pc-WLEDs.
