Research using the transistor laser led Professors Nick Holonyak Jr. and Milton Feng to rewrite Kirchhoffs current law. The unique properties of the transistor laser required Holonyak, Feng, and graduate student Han Wui reexamine and modify the law to account for photon particles as well as electrons, effectively expanding it from a current law to a current-energy law.
