It is not exactly fast they got the prize, it is more than 20 years ago they made the blue led.

Nothing unusual about that. Most recipients of Nobel prizes in science receive the award long after the honored work.

Thanks for pointing this out.

Flashlight designers should look at lighthouses and pottery.

Hey, where’s my Nobel prize? I invented the Smoke Emitting Diode and its cousin the Noise Emitting Diode long before those doofuses invented that blue thing…

we can nominate you for the IG Nobel prize

The Journal of Alternative Facts TM

"It is critical that there is a credible academic source for the growing and important discipline of alternative facts. This field of study will just keep winning, and we knew that all the best people would want to be on board. There is a real risk in the world today that people might be getting their information about science from actual scientists"

BTW, the Nobel winners didn’t invent the blue LED. CREE had a blue silicon carbide LED before Nichia, et al. It was rather dim, 5mm… but a pretty shade of cyan.

I’ve still got a few… somewhere. I bought them because my quantum electronics professor iinsisted there would never be a blue LED and gave all sorts of reasons why. I insisted there could and would be blue LEDs… thus he owed me a beer… which cost him considerably less than those rub-your-nose-in-it blue LEDs cost me. We never considered UV LEDs… everybody knows it’s utterly preposterous that those could ever be built…

Remember that there are X-ray lasers (that should really be called xasers).

So... scientists perfected LED light over twenty years ago?

Seems legit.

Invented, not perfected. They are still improving.

Come to think about it, the bastard owes me another beer. He lost out (big time) on a discussion over the achievable efficiency of laser diodes.
