What is induction Lighting?

The induction lamp is a promising technology which features good efficiency and long life. The induction lamp was conceived early on by Nobel laureate J.J Thomson. It was not until the 1960s-1970s when patents for a practical induction lamp were filed by both General Electric and Philips (more on inventors at the bottom of this page). Even then it was not until the 1990s that induction lamps began to see use on a wider scale. They still have not reached full market potential yet and there is still work to do to improve the lamp.
