Abstract

The history of the light bulb can certainly be traced back to Messrs Swan and Edison, but it is equally certain that they would not have made their respective leaps without the benefit of Michael Faraday’s research on electricity. His discoveries of the electric motor and the dynamo in the 1830s allowed for the continuous supply of electricity to make usable light a viable option. Although gas lighting predominated, and indeed continued until after the end of the Second World War, the first appearance of electric lighting was around 1880 and followed the development of the incandescent lamp by Edison and Swan (Fig. 1.1). These were very crude devices, as were the materials available to them. This resulted in efficacies of a very low level (less than 5 lm/W) at a correspondingly high cost.
