CaO:Tb3+ green-emitting phosphor for white light-emitted diode-phosphor applications: the improvement of light output intensity

Ha Thanh Tung, Dieu An Nguyen Thi


The use of CaO:Tb3+ with light green emission on for improvement of both luminescent output and chromatic fidelity of the white light emitted from a light-emitting diode (LED). The CaO:Tb3+ is combined with the yellow-emitting phosphor of YAG:Ce3+ to provide sufficient colored spectral proportion for the white light generation, enhancing the color performance. The phosphor combination is utilized for the three most applied LED structures: conformal, in-cup, and remote phosphor structures. The changes in optical properties of these three LEDs are monitored with adjustments in the proportion of CaO:Tb3+. The higher proportion of the green phosphor results in higher scattering efficiency in all structures, offering better color coordination and stronger luminous flux. The color quality scale is somehow reduced when CaO:Tb3+ concentration is more than a certain level. Therefore, depending on the phosphor configuration of the white light-emitting diode (WLED), the concentration of CaO:Tb3+ should be modified to achieve a good color rendition with improved color consistency and luminous properties.
