Here's a few LED

Definition of LED
(Entry 2 of 2)
: a semiconductor diode
that emits light when a voltage is applied to it and that is used especially in electronic devices (as for an indicator light)
[ el-ee-dee, led ]SHOW IPA
light-emitting diode: a semiconductor diode
that emits light when conducting current and is used in electronic displays, indoor and outdoor lighting, etc.

Light Emitting Diode (LED)
Definition: The LED
is a PN-junction diode
which emits light when an electric current passes through it in the forward direction. In the LED
, the recombination of charge carrier takes place. The electron from the N-side and the hole from the P-side are combined and gives the energy in the form of heat and light. The LED
is made of semiconductor material which is colourless, and the light is radiated through the junction of the diode
Please note that an LED
must have a diode junction to emit light
, thus it must be a diode
So we all end up with a smile
If you don't have any "diode junction" how can you have any "LED light", how can you have any "LED light" if you don't have any "diode junction"!!
Since after all, we are all just another Brick in the Wall!!
Research is like a treasure hunt, you don't know where to look or what you'll find!
