Researchers Develop Eco-Friendly, Carbon Nanotubes-Based Flat Panel Lights

Researchers Develop Eco-Friendly, Carbon Nanotubes-Based Flat Panel Lights

A new type of carbon nanotubes-based, flat, energy-efficient light source has been developed by researchers from the Tohoku University in Japan. This light source challenges the dominance of LEDs as the most energy-efficient lighting solution. It demonstrates a very low 0.1Wh power consumption that is approximately hundred times lower than the consumption of standard LEDs. [More]
