I. Overview

1, LED lighting

LED lighting is light-emitting diode lighting, which is a general term for LED lamps for lighting. It is the use of solid semiconductor chip as a luminous material, in the semiconductor through the carrier composite release excess energy and cause photon emission, directly emit red, yellow, blue, green light, on this basis, the use of the principle of three primary colors, add phosphor, can emit any color of light. According to its use, LED lighting can be divided into outdoor lighting, indoor lighting, special lighting, security lighting, special lighting, general lighting.
