FIPEL Bulb On Deck

A new type of bulb may start to show up next year thanks to the efforts of some university researchers at Wake Forest. It's the Field-Induced Polymer Electroluminescent, or FIPEL, bulb -  with a more pleasing color of light than CFLs, and none of the noise associated with them (both electrical "noise" and that annoying "buzzing" you sometimes hear).




The device is made of three layers of moldable white-emitting polymer blended with a small amount of nanomaterials. The result is a shatterproof material and a glow that creates a bright white light similar to sunlight, which the human eyes prefer.
