A New Blog but Old Technology
Our blog series is just getting started, but LED technology actually dates back to over 100 years ago. That’s when scientists in the late 19th century discovered light emitting diodes (LED), meaning electro-luminescence was achieved in the laboratory when silicon carbide crystals were energized with electricity. But it was only in the 1950s that researchers tinkering with television technology for RCA were able to produce an infrared wave length, or color of light. By the 1960s both yellow and red-orange wavelengths were discovered, and by the 1970s LEDs of high-brightness were produced and applied to the emerging fiber optic cable industry.
LEDs For Now
- Today the advantages of LED lighting are immense. Not just three, but a full palette of color options that have been created over the years, including purple, pink, violent, green, blue, white and ultraviolet.
- LEDs don’t give off heat like the more traditional incandescent bulb. That’s why they’re the preferred energy efficient option with expanded applications not just for room lighting, but also in freezers, refrigerators and automobiles.
- LEDs are cost effective with an average lifespan of anywhere between 25,000 to 100,000 hours.
