Nick Holonyak Jr., pioneer of LED lighting, dies
There wouldn't be a light show without Nick Holonyak Jr.
“It’s a good thing I was an engineer and not a chemist. When I went to show them my LED, all the chemists at GE said, ‘You can’t do that. If you were a chemist, you’d know that wouldn’t work.’ I said, ‘Well, I just did it, and see, it works!’” Holonyak said in a 2012 interview.
