An essential factor of the particle number is exploited for the phosphor excitation in phosphor-converted white LEDs. The particle number can clearly reveal the dependence of the light output flux and the correlated color temperature upon the conventional parameters, thickness, and concentration of the phosphors in a simpler way. In addition, we also find that there might exist an optimal particle number for the maximal luminous light output. An empirical function is then proposed for successfully modeling the relation between the output light and the particle number.
