Researchers at the University of Houston have developed a prototype LED that reduces – instead of masks – the excessive blue component, while also making colors appear just as they do in natural sunlight. To be more energy efficient, many people have replaced their incandescent lights with light-emitting diode (LED) bulbs. However, those currently on […]

University of Michigan researchers recommend replacing all incandescent and halogen light bulbs in your home now with compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) or LEDs. With LED light bulbs are getting cheaper and more energy efficient every year, does it make sense to replace less-efficient bulbs with the latest light-emitting diodes now, or should you wait for […]

Two researchers at Sandia National Lab suggest their research shows, historically, that improvements in lighting from candles to gas lamps to electric bulbs have led to increased light consumption rather than lower overall energy use. Back in 2010 Jeff Tsao at Sandia and Harry Saunders of The Breakthrough Institute in Oakland, Calif., authored an article […]
