New broadband glass phosphors with excellent thermal stability were proposed and experimentally demonstrated for white light-emittingdiodes (WLEDs). The novel glass phosphors were realized through dispersing multiple phosphors into SiO2 based glass (SiO2-Na2O-Al2O3- CaO) at 680°C. Y3Al5O12:Ce3+ (YAG), Lu3Al5O12:Ce3+ (LuAG), and CaAlSiN3: Eu2+ (nitride) phosphor crystals were chosen respectively as the yellow, green, and red emitters of the glass phosphors. The effect of sintering temperature on inter-diffusion reduction between phosphor crystals and amorphous SiO2 in nitride-doped glass phosphors was studied and evidenced by the aid of high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM). Broadband glass phosphors with high quantumyield of 55.6% were thus successfully realized through the implementation of low sintering temperature. Proof-of-concept devices utilizing the novel broadband phosphors were developed to generate high-quality cool-white light with trisstimulus coordinates (x, y) = (0.358, 0.288), color-rending index (CRI) = 85, and correlated color temperature (CCT) = 3923K. The novel broadband glass phosphors with excellent thermal stability are essentially beneficial to the applications for next-generation solid-state indoor lighting, especially in the area where high power and absolute reliability are required.
