Title: Phosphor-converted white light emitting diodes having narrow-band green phosphors

Abstract

In one aspect, a phosphor converted white light LED comprising a narrow green phosphor rather than a conventional broad green phosphor may simultaneously exhibit high R9, and high Luminance Efficacy of Radiation, optionally without use of a deep red phosphor to maintain desired red color rendering. In another aspect, a phosphor converted white light LED comprising a narrow green phosphor rather than a conventional broad green phosphor may provide an emission spectrum exhibiting a significant dip in the yellow region of the spectrum and thereby provide high red-green contrast without use of a filter. The yellow dip may be shallower than in conventional devices, and the device may therefore be brighter, while maintaining desired CRI and R9.
