Nanomaterials Improve LED Lighting
Nanosys has developed a way to make LED lighting look better by adding nanomaterials to blue LEDs.
"Their efforts have created an LED light that combines the energy efficiency of a blue LED with a nanotechnology layer that alters its blue appearance into a warm white light that is better than standard LED lighting," writes Geek.com's Doug Osborne.
"Furthermore, Nanosys' material could be utilized in a lot more than just light fixtures," writes Gizmodo's Sean Fallon. "Think about laptop and HDTV displays with better, brighter screens — all without increasing energy consumption."
"The process works by adding a phosphor material made out of nanoparticles to standard blue LEDs," writes Inhabitat's Ariel Schwartz. "The nanoparticles can add virtually any hue to a display — but with improved color saturation compared to regular LED displays."
