The Simple Quality of A LED Light

The simple things in life that carry an immeasurable amount of value and quality within themselves have always amazed me. For example, I’m finding it harder and harder to ignore the simple value that dwells inside of a single light-emitting diode (led).

You may not be familiar with what a single led light is or what it looks like. Nowadays, it seems as if led lights are used in massive groups for aviation, automobile lighting and high definition televisions. However, I’m focusing on the power behind a single led light before it is included in such a large group.

Even though it seems as if led lights are a somewhat new invention that is just being applied and used on a public scale, the truth is that they have been in existence for over 80 years. The first led light was created by Oleg Vladimirovich Losev in 1927. Even though it was publicized in various scientific journals, people could not find any real value or use for this invention until several decades later.

The infrared led light was patented by two experimenters working for Texas Instruments in 1961 and the first visible-spectrum red led was created a year later in 1962. From that point forward, different modifications and new colors to this simple invention were completed by a variety of different people as this small beam of light gradually evolved into the cutting edge technology that is practically being applied in so many different ways today.

Studies have proven that a single led light can live anywhere between 25,000 to 100,000 hours based on the levels of heat and other factors surrounding them. However, just to know that such a small beam of light has the potential of living anywhere between 3 to 12 years proves the power of advancing technology, even in the most simples of forms, in today’s society.
