For a wide application area, LEDs are always with secondary optic elements for a specific characteristic. However, the secondary optic element has two serious phenomena, die-imaging and yellow hue. In this literature, we study the two phenomena in two parts. The first part focuses on the relationship between the die-imaging phenomenon and the imaging power of TIR lens. In this part, we design two TIR lenses, point-to-point and point-to-plane, with difference imaging power and analysis the ray paths. The second part focuses on the simulation of white LED with the two different TIR lenses to study yellow hue phenomenon. Based on the color difference in CIE (u', v') picture, we get the relationship between refractive power and color shift. Finally, we adopt the MacAdam ellipsis system to define the reasonable color gamut.
