    How is white light produced by LEDs?


    LEDs do not directly produce white light. There are two ways in which white light is produced from LEDs as below:


    Using a blue LED with a phosphor coating to convert blue light to white light by a process called fluorescence.

    Combining red, blue and green LEDs to produce white light. White light is produced by varying the intensities of the individual red, blue and green chips.
