Abstract

Generating white light through a mainstream remote phosphor design suffers from phosphor conversion efficiency loss due to a backscattering of light. Such a loss also reduces luminous efficiency of the resulting white light. To overcome this issue, various glassy scatterers with different morphologies such as glass bubbles, glass beads, and nanosized silica particles were employed as scatterers, together with a fixed amount of yellow phosphor (YAG:Ce3+) and a poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS) matrix. In addition, the simulation of the system validates the rigorous multiple scattering of the incoming light most probably due to refractive index mismatch between the glass bubbles and surrounding PDMS matrix along with the internal reflections.
