Lights and Electricity innovations

  • Gas Lighting

    Gas Lighting
    Gas LightingWilliaam Murdoch was the first to utilize the flammability of gas for practical lighting.It replaced oils and wax for the more promenant light source
  • Electric Genertor

    Electric Genertor
    GenratorMichael Faraday creted the firs electric generator in 1831called the "Faraday Disk".He discovered thatrotar mecanical power can be turned in to electricity.
  • Solar energy

    Solar energy
    Solar InnovationsIn 1839 Edward Bequerl discovered that placing 2 electrodes in an electrolyte created energy, after being exposed to light. The first solar cell was invented in 1873.
  • lightbulb

    LightbulbHenricg Globel nted the first true lightbulb. He used a carbonized bamboo filament placed inside a glass bulb. In 1880 Thomas Edison made a lightbulb that burned for over 1200 hours using a bamboo derived filament.
  • Neon ligting

    Neon ligting
    Neon LightingNeon is an iert gas and chemical element that is a minor componant of earth's atmosphere. It was discovered by William Ramsay and Morris W. Travers. Neon is used in lots of bight signs.
  • Transistor

    Transistor' >Transistor</a>In1947, A tem at Bell Labs created the first transistor.(William Shockley, John Bardeen,and Walter rattain. transistor is a semiconductor device ued to amplify and and switch electronc signal.
  • Laser Pointer

    Laser Pointer
    Laser pointerThe first laser was invented in 1960 by Ali Javan. The laser pointer provides light in a specific place so you can see.
  • Light emmiting diode

    Light emmiting diode
    LED lightingNick Holonyak inventedthe Led lightbulb. Led lightbulbs are more energy efficient and brighter than incadescents
  • Efficient CFL bulbs

    Efficient CFL bulbs
    CFL bulbsEd Hammer created he first enrgy efficient CFL bulb, it has a spiral shape. Energy efficient CFL bulbs tae in a lot less energy than most other light bulbs.
  • Energy-efficient nano-carbon light bulbs

    Energy-efficient nano-carbon light bulbs
    Nano-carbonThe light bulb is 100 atoms wide. A Taiwanese research team manufactured the first one, that does not use mercury.
