Just to spice up the discussion of LEDs and their photo-sensitivity, I would
like to point you at the bachelor thess of Aljunid[1] where he used LEDs
as replacement for photodiodes in a michelson interferometer style
pulsewidth autocorellation setup to measure femtosecond pulses.

the prosperity and technological sophistication in the world is of no 
use without that foundation.
