Applications Indicator lights: These can be two-state (i.e., on/off), bar-graph, or alphabetic-numeric readouts. LCD panel backlighting : Specialized white LEDs are used in flat-panel computer displays. Fiber optic data transmission : Ease of modulation allows wide communications bandwidth with minimal noise, resulting in high speed and accuracy.
