Today us here at Solais Lighting Group would like to entertain you with 5 fun facts about LED lighting!

How honest are your eyes?

Most white LEDs are actually blue LEDs with special phosphor coatings which convert the narrow band (blue) light to a wider band light that humans perceive as white.

 

LEDs first time...

Professors Isamu Akasaki, Hiroshi Amano and Shuji Nakamura made the first blue LEDs in the early 1990s.
