How LED shines?

Now advocating LED lighting, I really want to know how it shines? Why can you save electricity?

1. (Basic introduction)
Light emitting diodes are simply referred to as LEDs. It is made of compounds containing Ga, As, P, N, etc. When electrons and holes recombine, they emit visible light and can be used to make light emitting diodes. In the circuit and instrument as a light, or composition of text or digital display. The gallium arsenide diode emits red light, the gallium phosphide diode emits green light, the silicon carbide diode emits yellow light, and the gallium nitride diode emits blue light. Due to chemical properties, organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) and inorganic light emitting diodes (LEDs) are also divided.

2. (Lighting color)
LED (Lighting Emitting Diode) lighting is LED lighting, and it is a semiconductor solid light emitting device. It uses solid-state semiconductor chips as light-emitting materials. In the semiconductors, carriers emit excess energy through carriers to cause photon emission, which directly emits red, yellow, blue, green, cyan, orange, violet, and white light. LED lighting products are lighting fixtures that use LEDs as light sources.

3. (Lighting principle)
The LED is made of III-IV compound such as GaAs (gallium arsenide), GaP (gallium phosphide), GaAsP (phosphorus gallium arsenide) and other semiconductors, and its core is a PN junction. Therefore, it has the I-N characteristics of the general P-N junction, ie, forward conduction, reverse blocking, and breakdown characteristics. In addition, under certain conditions, it also has luminescent properties. At the forward voltage, electrons are injected into the P region from the N region, and holes are injected into the N region from the P region. A part of the minority carriers (low births) entering the opponent's area is combined with majority carriers (multiple sons) to emit light.

4. (Advantages)
Frist small size
Second, low power consumption
Third, long service life
Fourth, high brightness, low heat
Fifth, environmental protection
Six, durable
Seven, changeable
Eight, advanced technology
