Demonstrating the Light-Emitting Diode.
Johnson, David A.
American Journal of Physics, v63 n8 p761-62 Aug 1995
Describes a simple inexpensive circuit which can be used to quickly demonstrate the basic function and versatility of the solid state diode. Can be used to demonstrate the light-emitting diode (LED) as a light emitter, temperature sensor, light detector with both a linear and logarithmic response, and charge storage device. (JRH)
