Theoretical limits on amount of light per amp?
« on: August 01, 2011, 07:41:41 PM »
Seems intuitive that there has to be such a limit - even with the discovery of new materials - there has to be a limit of much much light you can get from 1 amp of current since assuming the material itself is not an energy source it can only convert the energy into light in a less or more efficient manner?

So what does 1 amp convert to in candles / lumens assuming the perfectly efficient emitter/material?
