fireflies-isnpire-better-ledsResearchers from Belgium, France, and Canada studied the internal structure of firefly lanterns, the organs on the bioluminescent insect’s abdomens that flash to attract mates, and they managed to employ their findings in order to modify a light-emitting diode (LED) to be up to 55 percent more efficient. The technology oould be employed in near… »

stanford-led-chipA team of researchers from Stanford University School of Engineering has devised an ultrafast nanoscale light-emitting diode (LED) that is orders of magnitude lower in power consumption than today’s laser-based systems. It is also able to transmit data at the very rapid rate of 10 billion bits per second, making it suitable for use at… »
