Halogen to LED.? Answered

Right now i'm working on photo spectrography, and using a halogen lamp because of the wavelength it outputs.

The thing is, we are trying to make a more portable version of this, is there a type of LED or an array of them, that i could use for this?

Take in mind that the LEDs have to output a wavelength very similar or equal to that of a halogen lamp.

searching "full spectrum led" on google gives nice results.

As semiconductors, the output is rather narrow wavelength bands. You can't get a broad spectrum.
(OK you could use 1000 different LEDs, but that's no good is it?)
