LED Lights and their Legacy
In 1962, a scientist by the name of Nick Holonyak Jr. created the very first practical visible light-emitting diode. Companies like GE referred to the light as “the magic one.” In reality, Holonyak was not trying to create a light that would replace incandescent bulbs. However, he was attempting to create a laser. He ended up making a mini semiconductor light which was red and consist of gallium phosphide. Since the start of the 20th-century scientist knew that certain semiconductors will light up when an electrical current was applied.
At the start of LED history, Holonyak had instincts that this small efficient source of light would replace the clunky incandescent bulbs that illuminated the world at that time. However, in 2012, he said he never would have thought it would take 50 years. These little lights started off as indicator lights for electrical equipment. IBM used them in circuit boards as early as 1964. They begin to be input in digital watches at the start of the 1970s. In the late 80s, they begin to be constructed into traffic lights and brake lights. Now, today LEDS are completely replacing incandescent light bulbs.
