LEDs as a varicap diode

Hans Summers is a genius....


I have heard about people using LEDs as varicaps but I have never gotten around to looking into the idea. I am working on a project/design right now which will probably need a Varactor diode (varicap).

I saw a link on "The Knights" email reflector with Bill and Hans chatting back and forth about the topic and a link to Hans' site for more details.

Hans is a wild man, lots of graphs and data. I really like the OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) approach to the data... I would expect nothing less.  :-)
