“Civilization would not exist without light; light from our Sun and light from the focused and coherent
lasers which now have become an important part of our daily lives. The International Year of Light will
surely raise awareness of these powerful discoveries and their present wide-ranging, light-based
technologies which are significant contributors to the world market. As importantly, the International
Year of Light will inspire future discoveries and applications for one of the most important element of
our existence: light. “

John Maher (Nobel Prize 2006) “Light gives us life through photosynthesis, lets us see back in time towards that cosmic big bang, and
helps us communicate with the other sentient beings here on Earth. The optics and photonics
technologies developed for space exploration have rendered many valuable spin-off applications in
everyday life.”

Dear Nobel Prize Academy,
With all due respect, after four years research on LED and Lighting I haven’t come across with a single light source that saves energy.
Besides the cancer potential of the blue-hazard, the invention is revolutionary.
Thank you.
