What Does LED Stand For?
LED? As in lead, maybe? No, spoken “L” “E” “D” because it is actually an acronym.
Each letter stands for a word: Light Emitting Diode.
Light – come on, surely you know what light is!
Emitting – “letting out; releasing”
Diode – a semiconductor with two terminals.
An LED is a Diode that Releases Light. A tiny force of Energy Warriors free Abundant Light from the Semiconductor Prism.
LEDs are powered by electroluminescence as a byproduct of electrical current flowing through a semiconductor. The phenomenon of electroluminescence was first discovered in 1907 by a British experimenter named H. J. Round. LED lamps are energy efficient as they require less electricity to produce the same luminosity as a comparable incandescent lamp.
