LED Internal Quantum Efficiency and Power output-Definition, equation, calculator

This page describes LED Power output calculation based on LED internal quantum efficiency and other parameters. It mentions LED Quantum Efficiency vs power equation/formula and LED Power output calculator.

Definition:
The fraction of the electrons that are injected into the depletion layer which results in photons getting produced is known as internal quantum efficiency of the LED. It is denoted as η.

If N is the number of electrons injected into the depletion layer every second, the power output of the device is expressed by,
P = η*N*h*v = η*I*h*v/e
Where,
I is forward current
e is the electronic charge
Hence LED Power output equation is derived as follows.
