Comparison Study Among High Power LEDs for Automotive Applications 2011-36-0094

The electroluminescence, a process where light is emitted by the recombination of electrically accelerating charges (electrons and holes) on a solid state chip, is the basis of light-emitting-diodes (LEDs) technology. Until the early 90s, LEDs were considered light sources of low efficiency. Nowadays, white high power, high efficiency LED's, based upon fluorophores are extremely promising for both vehicular / automotive and machinery usages. Associate with its high efficient light production, the long life capability of these devices keep improving their performance.In this study, three models of LEDs, from two different manufacturers were used.
