A revolution is underway in the field of lighting. Several researchers and engineers explain how light-emitting diodes, better known as LEDs, work.
They demonstrate how this new electronic lighting will gradually replace existing bulbs because it reduces energy consumption and therefore pollution. LEDs are increasingly used in light boards, home and street lighting, monuments and transportation.
Research is also focusing on tomorrow's lighting, with OLEDs (organic light-emitting diodes) for example, which make it possible to produce very thin and flexible light emitters.
