Do you know how many types of LED lights are there?

What is LED light?

LED (Light Emitting Diode), light-emitting diode, is a solid-state semiconductor device that can convert electrical energy into visible light, which can directly convert electricity into light. The heart of the LED is a semiconductor chip, one end of the chip is attached to a bracket, one end is the negative electrode, and the other end is connected to the positive electrode of the power supply so that the entire chip is encapsulated by epoxy resin.

The semiconductor wafer consists of two parts, one part is a P-type semiconductor, in which holes dominate, and the other end is an N-type semiconductor, where electrons are mainly. But when the two semiconductors are connected, a P-N junction is formed between them. When the current acts on the wafer through the wire, the electrons will be pushed to the P region, where the electrons and holes recombine, and then emit energy in the form of photons, which is the principle of LED light. The wavelength of light, which is also the color of light, is determined by the material that forms the P-N junction.

LEDs can directly emit red, yellow, blue, green, cyan, orange, purple, and white light.
