Discuss the following a) LED b) Insulated Gate Bipolar transistor c) Properties of tungsten

(a)LED:  Led is light emitting diode. It is a pn junction diode, which emits light when gets activated. When a suitable energy is applied , electron combines with the electron holes  within the device releasing energy in the form of photons.LED lamps have a lifespan and electrical efficiency which are several times longer than incandescent lamps, and significantly more efficient than most fluorescent lamps.



(b)Insulated Gate Bipolar transistor: It is a transistor device and forms the basic component of all electronic devices. It used to amplify or switch electronic signals and electric power. IGBTs is also used       to generate the ( mercury) discharge, which lights up the bulb. It can also fit in a small volume.


(c)Properties of tungsten: Tungsten has a very high melting point , it has low vapor pressure and greatest tensile strength out of all the metals.  Because of these properties tungsten is used as filament in incandescent bulb.
