Farewell, unpleasant buzzing, irritating fluorescent office lighting. Your place is in the past. Scientists from Wake Forest University have developed does not flicker and unbreakable alternative to large fluorescent lamps. The novelty is based on a special electroluminescent technology, has received abbreviated FIPEL, and provides a soft natural light. This is not a yellowish flicker inherent in fluorescent lamps and bluish light, distinguishing LED lamps.

Main developer of the new technology, the director of the University Center for Nanotechnology and Molecular Materials, David Carroll (David Carroll) says:

People often complain that the fluorescent light is unpleasant to the eye, and the hum of these lamps can ruffle anyone sitting at a table, on which is light. We developed a new lighting solves both of these problems, and along with others. You need light, like natural. You need a light source that is not fragile, light, safe for your children.


To convert light energy into the development team has used nano-polymer matrix. This allowed scientists to create the light bulb completely new, unknown until now, like. If before plastic fixtures could be actively used for lighting and home office space because it interfered with a number of difficulties, but now these problems behind. Results of research and technology details were published scientific journal Organic Electronics.

The lamp is made of three layers of white resin that transmits light, mixed with a little nanomaterial off light when stimulated by electricity. The light turns bright white and perfectly close to the sun, which is preferred by human eyes. As used in the manufacture of polymer fixtures easily accepts any form, new lighting, easy to adapt to any lighting needs. They may look like a rectangular sheet that is optimal for lighting offices and traditional light bulbs, used for home lighting.


Energy efficiency new light sources surpass fluorescent doubled comparable with LEDs, which are the most economical. They, unlike the fluorescent, unbreakable and, unlike the LED does not exude light, “stained” unpleasant eye blue. Of course, the flexibility of the technology allows for new lights of any color.


At first, the group of developers led by Carroll decided to focus precisely on the office lighting. However, in his opinion, the new technology is not limited to home and office. In the future, it can be used to illuminate displays, illumination, shops and subway trains. Or perhaps a Christmas garland will also make the new technology?


Have FIPEL-technology, another major advantage. Lamp based on it is very long. According to the main university nanotechnology, almost ten years. The University is working with the production company, which will in the next year to please the customers a new type of lamps.
