The 2014 Nobel Prize in Physics went to the inventors of the blue LED, which provides the basis for today's energy-efficient and environmentally benign light sources. According to the citation, the blue LED "allows white light to be created in a new way". But without the discoveries subsequently made by Professor Wolfgang Schnick's group in the Chemistry Department at LMU Munich, consumers would not have taken to the new "white" light.
