Degradation mechanisms of high-power white LEDs activated by current and temperature


This paper presents a study of the degradation mechanisms that limit the reliability of commerciallyavailable white LEDs. Purely thermal stress and biased iso-thermal stress were carried out for several thousands hours on 1W-power LEDs, produced by a leading manufacturer. Results reveal that temperature and operating current have different roles in… (More)
