Abstract

A novel light luminaire is proposed and experimentally analyzed, which efficiently mixes and projects the tunable light from red, green and blue (RGB) light-emitting diodes (LEDs). Simultaneous light collimation and color mixing is a challenging task because most collimators separate colors, and most color mixers spread the light beam. Our method is simple and compact; it only uses a short light pipe, a thin diffuser, and a total internal reflection lens. We performed an experimental study to find a balance between optical efficiency and color uniformity by changing light recycling and color mixing.
