How are white LEDs created

There are currently two ways to make white light with LEDs. One method mixes multiple wavelengths of different LEDs to make white light (i.e. RGB); allowing the lighting designer to tune the white light to a specific color temperature.

The second method uses a blue Indium-Gallium-Nitride (InGaN) LED with a phosphor coating to create white light. This is the method that results in the more commonly seen "white LED".

Wide range of color temperatures

The full spectrum of white lighting is from 2760K-10,000K. Our product offering of cool-white, neutral-white and warm-white LEDs enable lighting designers and specifiers to create lighting solutions with consistent color temperatures.

High Color Rendering Index (CRI)

Color Rendering Index or CRI is the calculated rendered color of an object. The higher the CRI (based upon a 0-100 scale), the more natural the colors appear. Natural outdoor light has a CRI of 100. White LEDs offer the industry's highest CRI, making objects to be illuminated appear more natural and vibrant.

Conformal Phosphor Coating Process

Conformal phosphor coating process that uniformly coats the LED with phosphor. This eliminates the blue-ring effect common to other white LEDs and delivers the consistent white color throughout the light beam making the best white LED lighting source available today.
