Abstract

Phosphors that are designed for laser-lighting are essential to possess high luminescence saturation threshold. However, the current phosphors with adequate saturation threshold have been facing several technological limitations including costly, complex and tedious synthetic approaches. Herein, we report the facile fabrication of LuAG:Ce/glass composite films using an industry-friendly blade-coating method. The resultant composite film presents a porous architecture that can facilitate light extraction and confine the laser spots. When pumped by blue laser, the composite film shows a high internal quantum efficiency of 86% and the corresponding white light source shows a high luminous efficacy of 199 lm/W. Furthermore, the composite film shows no sign of saturation even under the irradiation of 30.1 W blue laser; therefore, a high luminous flux of 5496 lm can be achieved. The combination of these outstanding properties and the industry-friendly fabrication method can drive the development of commercially viable phosphors for high-power laser-lighting applications.
