The incandescent light bulb seems to have won a new lease on life, at least for the next 9 months say Washington insiders. According to reports coming out of the capitol, Congressional leaders reached an agreement on Thursday that will effectively, if temporarily, nullify legislation passed in 2007 that would have outlawed traditional incandescent bulbs as early as next spring. The new deal constitutes just a tiny part of the monolithic 1,200-page spending bill that designates the amount...

U.S. scientists have used an ultra-powerful laser to turn regular incandescent light bulbs into super-efficient sources of light. University of Rochester (N.Y.) researchers said the laser creates a unique array of nano- and micro-scale structures on the surface of a regular tungsten filament. It's those structures that make the tungsten emit light as bright as a 100-watt bulb, but consume less electricity than a 60-watt bulb. We've been experimenting with the way ultra-fast lasers change...
