We introduce a new fabrication technique of phosphor in glass (PiG) for light-emitting diodes (LEDs) employing the tape-casting. Through the detailed process described herein and the measurement results, it is clear that the PiG-on-glass not only share the same characteristic of those obtained from other techniques or the bulk PiG, but with more precisely controlled width from a few to hundreds micrometers. The samples are mounted on blue InGaN LED chips to test the color properties of the white light. Besides, we established an empirical model that could predict the final color properties of LEDs solely by the phosphor concentration of phosphor glass under certain conditions. This model would greatly facilitate the design of PiG-based LEDs.
