Unique computational tools discovered cheaper and smarter LEDs phosphor in the latest research performed by a team of engineers from the University of California San Diego.
With the help of news phosphor, the research team has devised a novel prototype for the LED light bulbs with white color. The new prototype has discovered a better color quality in the leading material of while LEDs bulbs – phosphor, as compared to many other commercial LEDs available currently in the world’s market.
LEDs’ key ingredient, i.e. luminous phosphors is the light emitting substance that comes in the form of crystalline powders. It absorbs energy from the closer –UV or blue light and then in visible spectrum, it emits white light by forming a combination of different colors of light. Phosphor is made up of some earth elements that are rarely found, so that they are very expensive, while others are manufactured with a few difficulties and poor color quality.
To overcome these issues a team scientists from the Chonnam National University and UC San Diego developed and discovered a new sort of phosphor. The team has made the new substance of its kind by including most of the earth-abundant elements with the help of some industrial methods. The new discovery produces potentially impressive LEDs that provide more vivid and accurate colors.
Study’s leading investigator, Prof Shyue Ping Ong from the Jacobs School of Engineering at the UC San Diego stated that, “Calculations are quick, scalable and cheap. Using computers, we can rapidly screen thousands of materials and predict candidates for new materials that have not yet been discovered.”
