    Halogen lighting

    A halogen lamp is similar to an incandescent lamp. The difference is that it contains a tungsten filament that contains an inert gas and halogen gases. This makes the halogen lamps brighter and last longer than conventional incandescent lamps.

    Incandescent light bulb



    The incandescent lamp makes light by heating a metal filament wire to a high temperature until it glows. The hot filament is protected from air by a glass bulb that is either filled with inert gas or evacuated.
