October 8 , 2014
Three scientists who helped in the creation of LED light have won the 2014 Nobel Prize in physics.
Isamu Akasaki and Hiroshi Amano from Japan and California-based Shuji Nakamura were given the highest prize in physics for the invention of the blue light emitting diode.
The awarding committee said that LEDs “hold great promise” in bettering the “quality of life for over 1.5 billion people” across the world who are not covered by electricity grids.
