I got to know that the threshold voltage for an LED is different for LEDs emitting different colors. I don't actually know the reason. I searched everything from the Web but didn't get that... Kindly help. Just gimme a hint or clue.

    $\begingroup$ Okay, here's a hint: a LED emitts its color depending on the semiconductor it is made of, and that's because each semiconductor has its own band structure. A higher gap implies more energy to reach the conduction band. Since $E=h \nu$, it will have a higher frequency. In other words, different colors = different gap energies. $\endgroup$
