  • Patent number: 9029898
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a light emitting diode (LED). The LED comprises an LED die, one or more metal pads, and a fluorescent layer. The characteristics of the present invention include that the metals pads are left exposed for the convenience of subsequent wiring and packaging processes. In addition, the LED provided by the present invention is a single light-mixing chip, which can be packaged directly without the need of coating fluorescent powders on the packaging glue. Because the fluorescent layer and the packaging glue are not processed simultaneously and are of different materials, the stress problem in the packaged LED can be reduced effectively.

  • Patent number: 9012945
    Abstract: LED dies, emitting blue light, are provided on a first support substrate to form a light emitting layer. A mixture of a transparent binder, yellow phosphor powder, magenta-colored glass beads, and cyan-colored glass beads is printed over the light emitting surface. The mixture forms a wavelength conversion layer when cured. The beads are sized so that the tops of the beads protrude completely through the conversion layer. When the LED dies are on, the combination of the yellow phosphor light and the blue LED light creates white light. When the LEDs are off, white ambient light, such as sunlight, causes the conversion layer to appear to be a mixture of yellow light, magenta light, and cyan light. The percentage of the magenta and cyan beads in the mixture is selected to create a desired off-state color, such as a neutral color, of the conversion layer for aesthetic purposes.
