Traditionally, white LED light is produced from a layer of phosphor adhered to on top of a royal blue LED. Over time, as heating cycles take effect, the adhesion begins to disintegrate and the phosphor layer “lifts” from the blue LED around the edges. This causes both depreciation of color and light output, as less of the light passes through the phosphor.
With Remote Phosphor technology, the phosphor is removed from the LED itself and relocated, reducing heat and extending life. Royal blue LEDs illuminate behind the phosphor material, causing it to evenly and consistently emit bright white light. The phosphor density can change light output color, and LED arrangements can be specialized for red enhanced CRI.
