Abstract
Light Spectrum Glazes has been granted a patent for the novel process of expanding and completing the spectral light array emitted by LED bulbs with transparent colors filters. Non-luminescent, low-cost, stable, and highly durable color filters are used to expand the jagged LED spectral emission into a full, true white light array. Transparent colors are applied in combination with existing manufacturing technologies as a final color-tuning step in bulb design. The quantity of emitted light that can be color filtered is adjustable from 1% to 100% of emitted light, creating a custom balance of light quantity with light quality. This invention recognizes that: (1) approximately 1/3 of people do not have trichromatic vision, (2) a robust white light spectrum of light is necessary to avoid metameric failure, and (3) "better light" quality is often as important or more important than "brighter light" quantity in the consumer marketplace.
