LED Efficiency Puzzle Solved by Theorists Using Quantum-Mechanical Calculations

Read the full story at Science Daily.

Researchers at the University of California, Santa Barbara, say they’ve figured out the cause of a problem that’s made light-emitting diodes (LEDs) impractical for general lighting purposes. Their work will help engineers develop a new generation of high-performance, energy-efficient lighting that could replace incandescent and fluorescent bulbs.
