Graphene Just Made The World’s Thinnest Light Bulb Ever

Scientists have created a transparent and flexible light using carbon in its purest form. They are also saying that this light can eventually be used to transform computers instead of electronic circuits in semiconductor chips.

Even in this constantly changing area of light bulbs this is notable invention. In recent years, as the United States and other countries have moved to phase out Thomas Edison’s century-old incandescent, the market has moved toward much more energy-efficient compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) and light-emitting diodes (LEDs)—and beyond.

Many companies are offering newer products, one such light company uses induction technology for warm-glowing efficient Acandescent alternative and Alkilu has portable organic LED lamps that don’t have a backlight.

Another new entry in the marketplace is going to be made later this year by a graphene coated LED, which is not pure graphene light but using graphene to increase the heat. After researching graphene, Duck Kim a postdoctoral research scientist at Columbia, found graphene to emit light on its own. He began studying light emissions from the grahpene, a newly discovered material, which is extra lightweight but stronger than steel.
