New inventions

Speaking about new inventions, it is interesting to mention that Martin Schubert, a doctoral student from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, developed the first polarized LED. This development will allow to greatly improve LCD screens, conserve energy, and give birth to a new generation of extremely efficient LEDs.

The polarized LED developed by the student represents a major advancement in the current LED technology, as it will allow to better control the direction and polarization of the emitted light. Consequently, it will decrease the amount of energy wasted for scattered light, and more light will get to the necessary spot. The polarized LED may be successfully used as a backlighting unit for any type of LCD, with its focused light producing more colorful, vibrant, and lifelike images on the display.
