Incandescent lighting came into being in late Victorian times, fluorescent lighting arrived around the 1930s, halogen lights first came into being during the mid to late 1950s, and even the ‘new’ kid in town, LED, was the 1960s conception of Nick Holonyak - though the technology has seen accelerated development over the last ten years or so.
New light bulb technology
Lighting technology is developing quickly: we have energy-saving halogen bulbs that operate significantly more efficiently than previous incandescent lamps; we have fluorescent lighting that is more viable, with higher quality output, and still at relatively low cost considering lifespan; then we have LED, really the great hope for the future, which has a potential being realised right now. The influx of LED solar-powered lights is representative of some of what we might achieve, and work is going on all the time to develop the technology further and make it a feasible choice across the board.
