A graphene light bulb has been created that provides a glimpse at what light bulbs may look like in the future using carbon, and is currently the worlds thinnest light bulb.
Columbia University researchers have unveiled the new light bulb chip they have designed that is capable of creating light by super heating graphene.
Graphene has many extraordinary properties and is about 200 times stronger than steel by weight, conducts heat and electricity with great efficiency and is nearly transparent. Watch the video below to learn more about the worlds thinnest light bulb to date.
The Graphene carbon compound is an allotrope of carbon in the form of a two-dimensional, atomic-scale, hexagonal lattice in which one atom forms each vertex. It is the basic structural element of other allotropes, including graphite, charcoal, carbon nanotubes and fullerenes.
