Researcher outlines process to simplify manufacturing of solid-state lighting

LED lighting is replacing traditional incandescent lighting across the country. These light-emitting diodes are energy efficient, but also problematic. Not only are they costly, they also emit harsh blue lighting that’s polluting our night sky and interrupting our sleep patterns. Mizzou Engineering’s Peifen Zhu is coming up with better solid-state lighting technology.
