Photonics4All Bookmark LED (Portuguese)
The purpose of the bookmarks for the project Photonics4All is to increase the public awareness of photonics and especially of the technological advances of photonics which have changed and improved everyday life (basic technology introduction).
How can Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) transform local food production?
Because LEDs emit pure and specific colours they can be used to make plants grow faster and larger. LEDs can replace sunlight or costly greenhouse lamps to grow crops in cold climates or during off-season periods. Growing food locally reduces the need for long-distance transport and lessens the environmental impact used to produce the food. All thanks to Photonics!
