Research Shows Salmon Sperm Could Revolutionize LED Lights

Scientists have discovered a way to create a superior LED lighting device using the DNA found in salmon sperm.

Dr. Andrew Steckl, one of the leading experts in photonics, explains.



Dr. Steckl: It is loaded with DNA , there is DNA everywhere but ideally you want a starting point that is very rich in DNA.



The driving force of the light stems from the double helix shape of the DNA found in the salmon sperm.


Dr. Steckl: The double helix has some interesting properties in regard to light emission. Because of the way it is shaped, you can insert light emitting molecules within it that operate more efficiently than in other host materials.
