#1 Guide to CCT

  The picture above illustrates the problem of colour zoning from LED spotlights. This is a true colour image (no Photoshop shenanigans!) in which there is a high colour temperature (blue white) central zone surrounded by an area of low colour temperature (yellow white). The problem occurs when the blue light from the LED passes through the phosphor coating. In the forwards direction, a minimum of blue light is converted to longer wavelength light by the phosphor, hence the light in that direction appears more blue (high CCT). However, blue light passing though the phosphor at higher angles is more absorbed due to the longer optical path length and hence more blue light is converted to longer wavelengths. Consequently, light at higher angles appears more yellow (low CCT).
