Another Color In the Rainbow: Luxeon Rebel Adds Deep Red to Its Spectrum
Aug 10, 2011 Within the LED market exist divisions, and within the color division there is the distinction between which wavelength can be produced by the LED. Philips Lumileds has broadened its attainable wavelength by adding deep red (650-670 nm) to its color spectrum, useful in horticulture and entertainment as well as the deep red some governments require in traffic lighting.
