These characteristics could make it valuable in a range of applications. The device shows an increase in brightness of 100 to 1,000 times […]

Many expect that LED technology is the electric light source for the future.  It would be a very good bet.  LEDs offer very low power consumption and long life.  The current downside is the initial investment and the replacement cost projection.  The economics work, but it takes years. University of Miami professor at the College […]

Bridgelux of Livermore California is claiming a breakthrough in using silicon to fabricate light-emitting diodes (LEDs). Their answer might be a breakthrough in producing LEDs at affordable prices with performance worthy of converting consumers. Light-emitting diodes are expected to be the new-wave components in many lighting applications because of their superior energy efficiency and longevity. […]
