I picked the bluest of 4 diodes and put it in a leadlight!
I picked the shortest wavelength of a set of 4. It ended up being the bluest of all the diodes I had left after shipping the ones in the GB. I also put the greenest of my set into a leadlight.
I had 8 diodes left after shipping them so I put them all along side each other to sort them by color. The difference in color is very noticeable! There are two sets of two in the middle that are hard to distinguish from each other, but that still gives 6 discernible colors.It's crazy how you can tell the color difference between them. Were they all a different color, or just a few outliers? I'm interested because even though we have wavelength measurements, I haven't heard of another diode out there where the wavelength variations are visually perceptable.
