Welcome To The
The world of Light Emitting Diodes is changing
so rapidly, I can barely keep up.
There is so much to tell you about
LED's, that I find myself constantly adding
new and exciting
information to this site.

The History Of LED's
* And Much, Much More
LEDís are my passion. This website is intended to be both
enjoyable and insightful. There are many different aspects to Light
Emitting Diodes these days and I will try to show you as many as I
can find. I will try to touch on their
History, their many applications and
where they are going in the future.
History Of LED's
The development of Light Emitting Diodes began way back in the early 1900ís.
Electroluminescence was discovered in 1907 by the British experimenter H. J.
Round of Marconi Labs, using a crystal of silicon carbide and a cat's-whisker
Oleg Vladimirovich Losev independently created the first
LED in the mid 1920s.

At one time, Light Emitting Diodes were only used in electronics, by electronic
minded people. That is obviously not the case anymore, but us techies still love
to play around with them. As you will discover, non-technical people can play
around with LEDís too. Whether you build your own circuit and make them, ďFlip
FlopĒ back and forth, or purchase some wonderful new gadget that does
the work for you, you will see that there are so many ways to enjoy them. Take a
look at my
Circuits page to see the circuits that you can build.

LED Christmas Lights
Why are LED Christmas Lights so special? There are many reasons, and I'll tell you what they are on my LED Christmas Lights page. I have some beautiful pictures of LED Christmas lights at my home in 2008. I even explain why LED Christmas lights are so great. There are many other surprises there too.

Gardening is fun and relaxing whether you do it outdoors or indoors. But
sometimes you just can't garden outside, usually because of the weather. I put
together a project to see how well Light Emitting Diodes stack up against other
types of lights. Maybe you could get some ideas from it or maybe you could just
check it out to see what happened. Either way, gardening indoors can be very
rewarding, and with the right lighting, very inexpensive.
