Knowledge - Artificial Light

Let's have an over view of the 3 common types of artificial light. The traditional Incandescent bulbs were first on the scene. Next, came the Fluorescent Lights and then LED Lights, both bringing advantages in bulb lifespan and energy savings. However, they are all three, still in use with their own distinct advantages and disadvantages. Read More

Fluorescent Lights have been commercially available since the 1930s as long Fluorescent Tubes. A smaller bulb like CFL (Compact Fluorescent Light) only became widely available in the 2000s. These lights use a mercury vapor (steam) inside the tube; electricity is applied within the tube, which causes the mercury vapor to emit UV light, or more accurately UV radiation. The UV radiation hits the inside surface of the tube which is coated with a phosphor material. The UV radiation causes the phosphor to glow.

Artificial Lighting Advantages & Disadvantages

Practically and economically speaking, LEDs seem to have a huge advantage and this is why most newly built facilities in developing countries are choosing LEDs for most of their environment lighting (e.g. factories, offices, libraries, museums).
