Colour tuning of white polymer light emitting diode (LED) light sources can be attained by various methods at various stages in the production process of the lamps and/or by the design of the active material incorporated in the LEDs. In this contribution we will describe the methods and discuss the physical background of colour tuning. Furthermore, the material design has led to polymers which are more stable during electrical stress, so that colour shift during lifetime can be excluded for white polymer LEDs. © 2010 Elsevier B.V.
