Why Do Yellow LEDs Look Green?
Has this ever happened to you? You're looking for yellow LED fog lights to get that unique JDM look. You order a pair online and install them, only to find that they actually have a green tint. What gives? The answer is actually pretty straightforward.
Most white LEDs on the market are actually a blue LED chip with a yellow phosphor coating. Blue and yellow combine, and you see white light.
However, many "white" LEDs actually illuminate in a cool white color with a hint of blue. To create yellow LEDs, many manufacturers will put yellow lenses on the outside of a bulb. Whenever any hint of blue shines through a yellow lens, the yellow and blue combine, producing more of a green color--not a good look!
