Blue LED rewarded for its environmental benefit

In a press release dated October 7th 2014, the Royal Swedish academy of sciences announced the laureates of the Nobel Prize in physics for 2014. Isamu Akasaki, Hiroshi Amano, and Shuji Nakamura were rewarded for their invention.
The Nobel Prize Assembly declared the blue LED “an invention of greatest benefit to mankind”.

The LED revolution: a modern light source

In 1962, the first LED was discovered by Nick Holonyak, but only red and green were available at the time. Thirty years later, the blue LED necessary to produce white light was created. With applications such as screens for TVs, smartphones, tablets, and more importantly bulbs and lamps, the LED revolution has begun. While the twentieth century was lit by incandescent bulbs, LED lamps are the lights of the twenty-first century.

And that is a good thing. LEDs are eco-friendly in many ways. Not only do they use less energy than incandescent bulbs, they also last much longer, therefore reducing materials consumption and waste.
For all these reasons, GEM is proud to offer attractive solar path lights and cordless LED lamps.
And our lamps can be green, red, blue, or any color you like. Your choice!
