A three-band white light-emitting diode (LED) was fabricated using an InGaN-based blue LED chip that emits 455 nm blue light, and green phosphor Sr Si2 O2 N2: Eu and red phosphor CaSi N2: Ce that emit 538 nm green and 642 nm red emissions, respectively, when excited by the 455 nm blue light. The luminous efficacy of this white LED is about 30 lmW at a dc of 20 mA. With increasing dc from 5.0 to 60 mA, both the coordinates x and y of the white LED tend to be the same, and consequently the Tc is the same and the Ra increases to 92.2.
