🤔 HOW IT WORKS ⁉
How color of an LED determines?
The material used in the semiconducting element of an LED determines its color. The two main types of LEDs presently used for lighting systems are aluminum gallium indium phosphide (AlGaInP, sometimes rearranged as AlInGaP) alloys for red, orange and yellow LEDs; and indium gallium nitride (InGaN) alloys for green, blue and white LEDs. Slight changes in the composition of these alloys changes the color of the emitted light.

🛕 VEDIK GYAN
(Kindly inform, if given info is differ from actual facts🙏🏻)
Meaning of Shivalinga
As the Shiva Puran states, the universe consists of bindu (Singularity, a dot) and Nada (the sound that pervades into eternity). In other words, bindu is immovable, fixed and hence Purush. Nada is movable, all pervading and hence Prakriti. Shiva is Bindu. Kali is Nada
From the fusion of bindu and nada is born the universe (this sounded roughly similar as the big bang theory, where the idea is that universe originated from Singularity). The idea of bindu and nada is depicted by union of lingam and Yoni. As Kali, who is Prakriti, sits upon Shiva and the union of lingam and Yoni happens, Shiva becomes Bhagvan. Bhaga means Yoni and one who fuses into Yoni is Bhagavan or Bharga.
Just as the fusion of lingam (phallus) into Yoni (vagina) gives a spark to life in human context, fusion of bindu and nada gives a spark to creation of brahmaand in universal context.
It is a symbol of Shiva and Shakti, bindu and nada, Purush and Prakriti.
Thus, we worship this eternal symbol of Shiva and Shakti because it symbolically depicts the creation, at both, literal and symbolic level.
