One of the most common types of light bulbs is fluorescent. Unlike incandescent bulbs, which use incandescent light bulbs, fluorescent lights use electricity instead. In fact, most people prefer fluorescent lights over incandescent ones, as they save on electricity bills. The difference between these two types of lights is the type of ballast that they use. The ballast is the component that controls the voltage and current in fluorescent lights.
The basic color rendering index of a fluorescent light is 65, while the color temperature of an LED is varying from 2200K to 6000K. A typical fluorescent lamp uses phosphors that range from Tb3+ for cool white light, to Ce3+ for blue and Eu:Y2O3 for red. The spectral peaks are easily recognizable, thanks to a special coating placed on the inside of the bulb.
The reason why fluorescent lights are so effective is due to their ability to emit and absorb light. The fluorescent light works by converting about 20% of its electrical energy into visible light. This is a significant improvement over incandescent bulbs, as they only produce one-third of the heat that an incandescent bulb produces. Its efficiency makes it an excellent choice for any room. And the best part is that these lights are able to produce the same amount of light as traditional incandescent bulbs, even though they are significantly more energy efficient.
