How does LED lighting work?

LED stands for Light Emitting Diode. It is a type of solid-state lighting that uses a semiconductor material to convert electricity into light. The semiconductor is composed of two layers, a layer made of a material that has an excess of electrons and another layer made of a material that has a shortage of electrons. When an electric current is applied to the semiconductor, electrons flow from the layer with an excess of electrons to the layer with a shortage of electrons, releasing energy in the form of light.

This process is very energy efficient and long lasting. LED lighting is a popular choice for a wide range of applications, including retail lighting, office lighting and lighting for restaurants, hotels and healthcare facilities.
