What does LED stand for?
The abbreviation – LED – stands for ‘light-emitting diode’. The first red light LED was invented back in 1962 by Nick Holonyack Jr. with subsequent colours; yellow being invented in 1972 by M. George Craford and blue invented in 1979 by Shuji Nakamura. Today, LED light bulbs are the most eco-friendly and cost efficient way to light a room or space.
