Abstract

Tungsten photonic lattice filaments or tungsten photonic lattice light sources are being developed. These light sources produce less heat, generate more light, and use less energy than contemporary filaments and incandescent light sources. Tungsten photonic lattice based light sources could be used in vehicle applications where incandescent lamps are currently being or could be used. Further, these light sources could be used in place of other types of light sources. Advantages of such light sources may include a smaller need for ventilation and potentially smaller bulb sizes, which would allow for greater design flexibility.
