When designing a remote phosphor system, there are three critical questions to ask yourself:
- What color and shape of light do I need?
- Which blue LED will provide optimal efficiency and light output?
- Which mixing chamber approach suits my application best?
ChromaLit has color and shape covered with our high performance remote phosphor components (see our ChromaLit product selector guide and datasheet for more info). For the others, there are many companies that offer focused solutions.
Blue LED Selection
Which blue LED will provide optimal efficiency and light output?
ChromaLit is blue LED agnostic, allowing you to use any preferred blue LED. Still, more efficient and higher performing blue LEDs will greatly enhance the remote phosphor system.

Which mixing chamber approach suits my application best?
When it comes to the mixing chamber, reflectivity is key. Other considerations include shape, temperature, and method of application. The following suppliers offer materials to ensure advantageous light extraction. Contact suppliers for further technical details.
Furukawa produces a micro cell - polyethylene terephthalate (MC-PET), a microfoamed material with typical 10 micron feature size. Performance is rated at 99% total reflection and has a maximum temperature rating of 177°C.
WhiteOptics White97 film is a high density polyethylene material with a UL Relative Thermal Index of 100C/110C and a deformation temperature of 124°C. The material can be provided in rolls, die cut and thermoformed shapes with and without adhesive backing and has a reflectivity of 97.4% at 550nm.
