Scientists have used graphene to produce the world’s thinnest light bulb

For the first time ever, researchers have managed to produce visible light using graphene as a filament, creating the world’s tiniest light bulb. 

Researchers have been struggling for decades to produce a light source small enough to fit on a silicon chip as it will help them to create super-fast computers that process light instead of electricity – and now they’ve shown that wonder-material graphene, which also happens to be incredibly thin, light and flexible, can do just that.
