Emission spectrum modeling of white LEDs light source with using Gaussian function





A mathematical model for emission spectrum modeling which is simple, easy to use, easy to understand and apply; is built and proposed. Then, the model can applied to design emission spectrum with using LED, study the optical and color performance of emitted white light spectrum. This effiecient method is helpful for researcher working in solid state lighting (SSL) field, spectrum design for light source, optimize the optical and electrical performace for any specify desired light source.
