LED Technology: What Are the Electrical Components?

LED lightbulb electrical components

LED light bulbs are set up much differently than traditional light bulbs. For that reason, they have some electrical components that are different from incandescent light bulbs.  Unlike incandescent lights that emit light from a vacuum, LED bulbs emit light from solid matter, known as a semi-conductor.

Consider a semi-conductor like a sponge cake, with different layers that allow electrons to move around through the holes of the cake. The bottom layer, filled with negatively charged particles, move throughout the semi-conductor once it is powered and activated. The top layer, filled with positively charged particles, move through the conductor at the same time. Both the positive and negative charges meet together in the middle layer, where light is emitted from.
