50 anniversary of LED light bulbs

2012 is a special year for LED bulbs, an acronym that means Light-Emitting Diode. In 1965, its creator, Nick Holoyank, invented the LED bulbs, creating a new way to light different to the incandescent bulbs, but at the time, much better than these.


Now, from that date they were created, 50 years have passed, and so the 2012 is so special because it is the 50th anniversary of the creation of LED bulbs.

The creator of LED bulbs

The creator of the LED is none other than Nick Holoyank, a scientist who worked at General Electric and doing experiments. That’s how manipulated a semiconductor laser causing it to illuminate and thereby creating LED lamps, visible to the human eye.

Of course, since the light diodes were created to present LED bulbs have changed a lot, for better of course.

Advantages of LED light bulbs

The benefits you can find in LED bulbs is the fact you will save up until 90% compared to incandescent bulbs. It also has a much longer shelf life than regular bulbs and can last up to 24 years (even more).

Another advantage is the chip inlaid that can vary the light intensity.
