The energy-efficient generation of white light has recently become an important societal issue. The technology of white-light emitting diodes (LEDs) is one of the most promising solutions to efficiently generate white light for home, office, and street locations, and even for remote locations without electric power grid [1]. One of the outstanding in the development of LED technology are understanding the scattering [2], the absorption and emission with analytical physical models [3, 4]. As a first example of the power of the physical understanding of multiple light scattering in LEDs, we describe straightforward tools to extract essential optical parameters.
