What is an LED? A light-emitting diode (LED) is specifically a light source from a semiconductor. LEDs first appeared in 1962 and are becoming the standard for indicator lights in most devices as well as being used for general lighting purposes. LEDs were originally limited to the red light with low-intensity, but the modern LED are able to emit light across a wide variety of light wavelengths with extremely bright light.
When a light-emiting diode, such as the ones in our LED dog collar, is activated, electrons connect with gaps within the device and emit photons through a process called electroluminescence. LEDs have an array of advantageous qualities when compared to incandescent light which include more efficient use of energy, increased lifespan, and quicker response time.
The future of LEDs looks bright (sorry for the horrible pun) and we will be on the cutting edge of development to ensure we integrate the brightest and most efficient LEDs possible.
