A comeback for incandescent bulbs?External link

Incandescent bulbs have always suffered from one major problem: More than 95 percent of the energy that goes into them is wasted, most of it as heat. Now, researchers at MIT and Purdue University may have found a way to make them just as efficient as some LED bulbs. Read MoreExternal linkage
