Abstract

A technique that saved phosphor use by 150% was applied to warm white light-emitting diodes containing composite colloidal photonic crystals (c-CPhCs) to develop an electrical source of candlelight that exhibits a high luminous flux (52 lm) and a high color-rendering index (CRI; 94). This physiologically friendly light source, which was designed to mimic the color temperature of candlelight, provides at least eight-times more luminous flux than traditional candles do. Furthermore, a UV-based adhesive curing method for enhancing the adhesion properties of c-CPhCs was also developed. A novel, inexpensive technology was implemented to produce high-CRI candlelight LEDs for use as a residential light source.
