What if I told you that researchers in the UK have developed light emitting diodes (or LEDs) that are 230% efficient? In other words, they put out more energy than they take in. But how? Wouldn’t this violate the 3rd law of thermodynamics? Fortunately not:
[...]it doesn’t violate the conservation of energy because it appears to draw in heat energy from its surroundings instead.[...] The extra energy came instead from lattice vibrations.
