Optoelectronics refers to the communication between optics and electronics, including the study, design, and manufacture of devices that convert electrical energy into light and vice versa through the use of semiconductors. Optoelectronics devices are made from solid crystalline devices which are lighter than metals but heavier than insulators. These devices can be found in optoelectronic applications such as defense, telecommunications, automatic access control systems, and medical equipment. Optoelectronic devices are classified into five types: photodiodes, solar cells, light emitting diodes (LEDs), optical fibers, and laser diodes. This blog will explain each type and its unique applications.

Fluorescent lights use electricity to cause mercury gas to emit ultraviolet light. When that UV light, which is otherwise invisible to the naked eye, interacts with the light tube’s phosphor powder coating, it glows and produces visible light. However, like any electrical application, the electricity in the tube must be controlled so it does not damage the device or put anyone in danger. To monitor the electrical current flowing through a fluorescent light, a ballast is used. This blog will serve as a thorough guide to fluorescent ballasts.
