White-light-emitting diodes (WLEDs) were fabricated by combining a yellow Sr3SiO5:Ce3+, Li+ phosphor with a blue light-emitting diode (LED) (460 nm chip) or a near ultraviolet (n-UV) LED (405 nm chip), respectively. Color temperature (Tc) of Sr3SiO5:Ce3+, Li+-based WLEDs could be tuned from 6500 to 100,000 K (blue LED pumping) and from 4900 to 50,000 K (n-UV LED pumping) without mixing with other phosphors. The blue LED-pumped WLED showed excellent white light (luminous efficiency=31.7 lm/W, Tc=6857 K) at 20 mA. This WLED showed a stable color coordinates property against an increase of the forward current. An n-UV LED-pumped WLED also showed bright white light (25.0 lm/W, 5784 K) at 20 mA.
