Both theoretical and simulation approaches were used to obtain the thermal power and temperature distribution in phosphor-converted white LEDs (pc-WLEDs) using a remote-dome phosphor package (RDPP). Different material and geometric parameters were systematically and thoroughly studied. An experiment was performed to measure the temperature distribution in an RDPP pc-WLED, which confirmed the simulation results. Given practical limitations of the material parameters, the most feasible method to reduce the phosphor temperature is to extend the dome radius and the thickness of the phosphor region.
