light emitting diode (LED)

Popular Terms
Electronic device that emits light when electric current flows through it. Older LEDs were made from semiconductor material such as gallium arsenide and produced only a few colors (mainly red or green). Newer LEDs are made from synthetic materials such as p-phenylenevinyl and can produce light of any color. LED-based lighting bulbs that consume little current and last for decades are under development.
