In a practical sense, the development of high-performance visible-spectrum light-emitting diodes (LEDs) has occurred over a period of over 60 years, beginning with the discovery of the first semiconductor p-n junction in 1940, the development of solid-state electronic band theory in the 1940s, the invention of the first bipolar transistor in 1947, and the demonstration of efficient light generation from III-V alloys in the 1950s and 1960s. This paper reviews some of the major scientific and… CONTINUE READING
