The device is said to be significantly more energy efficient than traditional LEDs
(PRWEB UK) 9 May 2013
It has been reported in Phys Org that the development could lead to the use of LEDs universally to provide cheap and efficient lighting. Using a process known as chemical vapour deposition, the researchers created a 41 micrometre long nano-sheet made from cadmium sulphide and cadmium selenide powders. The device is said to be significantly more energy efficient than traditional LEDs, with the colours emitted as lasers, therefore providing a very sharp and specific spectral light in comparison to LEDs which emit colours in a broadband width.
Lead author of the study, Professor Ning explained that “In addition to being used for solid state lighting and full colour displays, such technology can also be used as light sources for fluorescent bio and chemical detection.”
Offering a vast expansion of domestic and commercial lighting, including LED strip lights and tape lights, the team at Simple Lighting have become more than familiar with the benefits of using the light emitting diodes for a variety of functions. As such the recent news caught their interest and a representative from the firm shares their thoughts on the matter.
“This is one of a number of studies recently making progress into making LEDs more efficient. As well as research into improving their energy efficiency, there has also been work into improving the quality and lowering costs. This is all helping to drive forward the industry.”
