Highly efficient, light-emitting diodes (LEDs) could slash the world's electricity consumption. They are already sold in stores, but more widespread adoption of the technology has been hindered by high costs due to limited ...
How many researchers does it take to change a light bulb? And how many lives could they save by changing it?
Home automation seems to be one of those tech industry snowballs that's starting to roll downhill. The 2015 Consumer Electronics Show was packed with new ways to control your home environment.
Black Friday and Cyber Monday have come and gone. I hope you're at least partially finished with your shopping. (I'm certainly not.)
The phase-out of traditional incandescent bulbs in the U.S. and elsewhere, as well as a growing interest in energy efficiency, has given LED lighting a sales boost. However, that trend could be short-lived as key materials ...
US-based researcher Shuji Nakamura, one of three scientists to win the Nobel Prize Tuesday for Physics, said he was delighted to see his "dream of LED lighting" become a reality.
Chemists at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitaet (LMU) in Munich have developed a novel type of red phosphor material, which significantly enhances the performance of white-emitting LEDs.
Not too long ago, I wrote a review of several 60 watt-equivalent bulbs that use light-emitting diodes. I touched on a few ideas about the future of light bulbs that prompted some conversation both online and in the office.
