independent.co.uk -- As Professor Nick Holonyak watched the Nobel Prize in Physics being awarded to three men for creating a new kind of light-emitting diode (LED), the 85-year-old harrumphed and said he found it “insulting”. The retired American engineering professor from the University of Illinois invented the first visible spectrum, the red LED, in 1962 while working for General Electric, and colleagues have spent years saying the Nobel committee has unjustly overlooked his achievement.
Prof Holonyak’s claim could itself be challenged as Russian scientist and inventor Oleg Losev created the first LED, which future scientists were able to build on. However, as he died in 1942, two decades before any practical use was made of his discovery, the Nobel committee has overlooked him too.
