Yellow emitting Ca2BO3Cl:Eu2+ phosphor was prepared by solid state reaction at 900°C. The particle was monoclinic crystal structure, and showed broad band emission at around 540-590nm due to the 5d-4f transition. Single Ca2BO3Cl:Eu2+ phosphor converted white LED exhibited the CIE coordinates of (0.3441, 0.2675) with low CRI of 67.4. Hybridization of Ca2BO3Cl:Eu2+ with 535 and 610nm emitting CdSe/ZnS nanocrystals contributed to increasing white spectrum and generated the warm color temperature (4055K) with high CRI (83.9) of white light. The acceptable color stability was also observed from (0.3687, 0.3051) at 20mA to (0.3645, 0.3101) at 80mA.
