Giving LEDs a Cozy, Warm Glow; A novel temperature-dependent coating on white LEDs creates warmer colors when the lights are dimmed
November 19, 2014
When the 2014 Nobel Prize in physics was awarded this October to three Japanese-born scientists for the invention of blue light emitting diodes (LEDs), the prize committee declared LED lamps would light the 21st century. Now researchers from the Netherlands have found a novel way to ensure the lights of the future not only are energy efficient but also emit a cozy warmth.
