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...
