Nanobulbs make their debut

Abstract:
Light bulbs have not changed much since they were invented by Thomas Edison 125 years ago. However, physicists in China have now made a light bulb in which the conventional tungsten filament is replaced by carbon nanotubes. The new design has several advantages over traditional light bulbs and could be available in less than five years.
