P.S: Even though I know that a diode is a one-way "valve" for electrons, it's still a challenging concept for a chemical engineer
Allen - If you have one source for the light, no diode (or one-way valve for mechanical geeks) is necessary. If you have two or more sources controlling a light, there should be a diode in series with each source. Sometimes, depending upon the electrical make-up of the source (for example a transistor output) you can skip one diode. But not knowing the make-up of the source, a diode would be best on all multiple sources to the light.
