Is a glowing LED meaningful to determine the Plank's constant accurately?
Author(s): Chetan Kotabage

Paper Abstract

Plank’s constant is a fundamental constant in Physical sciences and Millikan was awarded Noble prize for its experimental determination. With the advent of solid state electronic devices, experiments were designed to determine the Plank’s constant utilizing LED.1, 2 Herrmann, Sch¨atzle3 and Morehouse4 have discussed the validity of this experiment. In this paper, the validity of this experiment is re-examined. The measurements of the longest wavelength light emitted by LED and precise determination of band gap energy of LED are essential for accurate determination of Plank’s constant by utilizing LED.5 An experimental study of these arguments is also presented in this paper.
