Sweden, 7 October 2014– It’s Official: The Nobel Prize awards three scientists in Japan and the US for the invention of blue light emitting diode or LED. The Nobel Prize also declared LED lighting as the world’s greatest invention to benefit mankind.
The new Nobel Laureates, Professors Isamu Akasaki, Hiroshi Amano and Shuji Nakamura – will arrive in Stockholm to receive the distinction in December. They invented the first blue LEDs in the 1990s.
The Nobel Prize cited that “by using blue LEDs, white light can be created in a new way. With the advent of LED lamps we now have more long-lasting and more efficient alternatives to older light sources.”
According to Dr. Frances Saunders, President, Institute of Physics: “With 20% of the world’s electricity used for lighting, it’s been calculated that optimal use of LED lighting could reduce this to 4%.”
