Abstract
A compact encapsulating lens is proposed and analyzed, which simultaneously collimates and mixes the tunable light from red, green and blue (RGB) light-emitting diode (LED) chips. Colored LED chips are embedded within a spherical lens, and a section of the sphere that surrounds chips is mirrored with a diffuse reflector. Color light is mixed by multiple total internal reflections (TIRs), the scattering mirror breaks TIR, and light escapes only in a narrow beam in the forward direction. The color distribution, the beam pattern, and efficiency are analyzed by Monte Carlo ray tracing calculations.
