Invention of blue LEDs wins physics Nobel

From BBC News7 October, 2014 10:13

The 2014 Nobel Prize for physics has been awarded to a trio of scientists in Japan and the US for the invention of blue light emitting diodes (LEDs).

Professors Isamu Akasaki, Hiroshi Amano and Shuji Nakamura made the first blue LEDs in the early 1990s. By combining blue light with existing red and green LEDs, this enabled a new generation of bright, energy-efficient white lamps as well as LED screens. The winners will share prize money of eight million kronor (£0.7m). They were named at a press conference in Sweden, and join a prestigious list of 196 other Physics laureates recognised since 1901.
