Measurement of the luminous intensity distribution

By goniophotometry the luminous intensity distribution can be measured as an important measure for the evaluation of the directional emission characteristic of lamps and luminaries.

Thermography on LEDs

Which locations are particularly thermally loaded in LEDs? How can components be adapted accordingly? This can be determined by means of the Fraunhofer AWZ's equipment.

Luminescent glasses for white light-emitting diodes

Longer lifetime, more stable colour impression - this is achieved by new phosphors based on luminescent glasses.

Thermally-stable phosphors for white LEDs

To further optimize white light LEDs, the right combination of LED and phosphor is crucial.
