Application of white LEDs is extended toward high-output light sources, e.g. for automotive headlights, and better spectral matching with optical filters for LCD backlighting. To meet such new demands, phosphor materials have been investigated with focus on their luminescence spectra, temperature characteristics and reliability. The conventional yellow phosphor based on Y3Al5O12:Ce3+ has excellent performance as a single phosphor combined with a blue LED. More recently developed nitrido- or oxonitrido-silicates activated with Eu2+ are also promising materials showing green to red luminescence depending on a composition and high thermal and chemical stability. And yet, demands for specific application have been made clear and strong. This paper reviews the present status and challenging goals of phosphors in the next stage further to make progress in white LEDs.
