Graphene light bulbs: what’s the secret sauce?

The simple structure of graphene belies some remarkable physical properties, many of which look like they will prove to be valuable in optics and photonics products of the future. Exactly what function the two-dimensional monolayer material performs in the bulbs developed by Manchester's National Graphene Institute remains a mystery for now.

Graphene light bulbs, expected to be more efficient and cheaper to produce than LED lights announced by the University of Manchester graphene project. Potentially exciting news – but may have to be patient until more concrete details come to the surface.

Claims that a University of Manchester spin-out will be selling graphene-enabled efficient LED bulbs within months look optimistic at best.
