Shop lighting upgrade: T5 vs T8 fluorescent vs LED I am in the process of upgrading the lighting in my shop. It currently has a number of 4-lamp and 2-lamp T12 4-foot fluorescent fixtures. The best solution is to replace the ballast in each of these fixtures with high-efficiency electronic ballast ($15), and replace the lamps with T8 high-CRI bulbs. This will save energy, and greatly improve the quality of the light. LEDs and T5 fluorescent are MUCH more expensive to install, and their energy savings are not nearly enough to justify the cost. Remember that running a T8 with an electronic ballast will provide more light than it's nominal rating, which is for magnetic ballasts. T5 are always rated for electronic ballasts, so it is not a fair comparison. For new fixtures in my shop, the cheapest/best solution is to buy $10 "shop lights" and replace the ballast. The total fixture cost is $25, and efficiency is 96 lumens/watt for a total output of almost 6000 lumens. It can't be beat! Commercially-available T8 fixtures with electronic ballasts are more expensive, and the quality of the ballast is suspect.
Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs Mark Donovan of discusses the energy and cost saving benefits of using compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFL bulbs).

Nico Stuurman (UCSF): Fluorescence Microscopy Fluorescence is a physical phenomenon in which a compound absorbs light and re-emits this as light of a usually higher wavelength. Since the wavelengths of the excitation light source and the emitted fluorescence can be separated very well, we can detect fluorescence with very high sensitivity, making it possible to visualize even single molecules. Many different fluorescent probes for cellular components have been developed, including genetically encoded probes like the Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP). For these reasons, fluorescence microscopy is a very powerful tool in Cell Biology research. See more at

Arctic Monkeys - 'Fluorescent Adolescent' (2007) Great new video from Sheffield's finest! Enjoy the clowns!
Super Bright Fluorescent Joule Thief NOTE:: the frequency noise is only picked up by the camera. it doesnt actually squeal like that audibly. alot of people have made some cool portable fluoro lights on youtube but none of them were bright enough for me. "boomerman2004" has made a great instructable on how to do this at s821 i basically did the same thing and took cheap camera circuits and gutted them, but used 3.6 cell phone and cordless phone batteries as inputs. one of them is actually one of the battery cells that make up a laptop battery. each put out around 4v at good current. the problem is leaving the lights on for too long will burn out the transformer. i added a 25 ohm rheo on the green box so i can leave it on for however long i want, just at a low brightness. i wasnt satisfied with the light a single AA puts out, and i like the rechargeability of these battery packs. they charge super fast and will last like almost forever in these circuits. i will definitely be using these next time the power goes out. room to room portability is what makes it ideal. u could also create an inverter for a car battery that will run much bigger fluoros during outages. the pope is a faggot and im going to spinkick that fool in his big ass head ay seriously tho if u like the pope u need to sit on a pinecone and twirl true story

Compact Florescent Light Bulbs: The Truth Here's a cute skit that shines a nasty light on the true problem with CFL bulbs. FYI, CFL's contain 5 miligrams of mercury per bulb and not the 5 grams they say in this skit.
How to install or change fluorescent bulbs in recessed office fluorescent lighting This video shows you how to install or change fluorescent bulbs in recessed office fluorescent lighting fixtures. IMPORTANT NOTE: After a great comment from hellish200808 - we were reminded to advise everyone to install or change a pressurized bulb (including fluorescent bulbs) with EYE PROTECTION! This video does not show that - but should have!!! It can seem impossible to get fluorescent bulbs into the tight recessed fixture space without a lot of frustration. Bobby Gregory demonstrates how to use the "secret grooves and installation holes" known to professional installers. Once you know the secret you can get the fluorescent lights into the fixture quickly! Recessed lights don't allow you to install the bulbs from the side, unlike non-recessed fluorescent fixtures - making changing bulbs in recessed fixtures appear much more difficult. Recessed fluorescent fixtures are found in rooms or offices with suspended ceilings. This video is dedicated to the small businessperson who often must change the bulbs themselves, or rely on a non-professional to do the job.

If your business is not appearing on these maps under your top keyword search phrases, you are losing business!
AWESOME FLUORESCENCE THERMOCHROMISM In this video we're going to demonstrate fluorescence thermochromism. Simply dissolve a small amount of copper iodide into pyridine to form a clear yellow solution of trispyridine copper iodide. Normally this does not fluoresce but if cooled to liquid nitrogen temperatures it will fluoresce a strong yellow color. To understand why this happens one must first understand a little about fluorescence. The ultraviolet light is absorbed by the molecule and excites electrons in it to higher energy levels. Normally the molecule bumps into other molecules and looses this energy, dropping the electrons back into their ground levels. In fluorescent materials though, the electrons release their energy first as fluorescent light before they loose their energy through collisions. In trispyridine copper iodide, the molecules vibrate and collide too much at room temperature and thus destroy any chance of fluorescence, so the substance looks non-fluorescent. But if cooled low enough, the molecules vibrate less and thus the electrons have more opportunity to emit light before a collision. Now moving on, if a few drops of the trispyrdine copper iodide solution is put on a sheet of filter paper and allowed to dry. it looses a pyridine molecule to become bispyridine copper iodide. This substance is more stable and will fluoresce at room temperature. But cooling will not improve the fluorescence noticeably since the substance is already stable enough to resist collisional deactivation. Warming ...

Health Effects - Compact Fluorescent Bulbs Many people have reported sensitivity to Fluorescent Bulbs, and now with the compact version (CFL) set to take over in 2010 - was it really well planned? Did the industry do any tests to show the safety of the product before releasing the product? Sounds similar to the Cell Phone issue - infact it is. CFL emit high amounts of Electromagnetic radiation. People who wish to argue this fact should first get a RF meter and test it themselves beforehand. Some CFL cause the meters to go off the charts!! - even higher then Cell Phones. So what else is there on the market? LED has also been tested and has a considerably low level of emissions - far lower then anything else on the market. So why is North America been forced to buy CFL when LED was available in Europe? LED is now making its way into the regular stores - watch for it, test it, demand it. By the time 2010 bans regular bulbs you will already know the healthy choice and avoid the headaches. For those familiar with the show Myth busters, watch the episode all about testing CFL verses LED and see the comparison, LED lasted long after all the other bulbs Report by King 5 News Seatle King5 News sister station Komo4 reporter back in news with brain tumor ( studio lights are also strong )

Fluorescent Light Bulbs Dying End of life of some Fluorescent light bulbs that are declared dead in Rapid-Start or Preheat fixture but that can still run a few minutes, hours, sometimes days or weeks on an Electronic F32T8 ballast. Here are some Sylvania Octron F32T8, Sylvania SuperSaver F40T12 and some crappy Philips Altos. The starters you see are dummies, the glow bulb has been removed to have a closed circuit on the Electronic Ballast wiring, and to keep the vintage look as well.

Mercury Pollution from Compact Fluorescent vs Incandescent Light Bulbs Here I thought I'd share a bit of research I did over the past few days. Are incandescents better because they don't contain mercury? NO. We can reduce mercury pollution from CFLs to zero by taking two steps: 1) use clean sources of power, 2) recycle the bulbs after they blow. Think about it.
