Researchers tout shatter-proof alternative to fluorescent lights/

Researchers at Wake Forest University say they have developed a flicker-free, shatterproof alternative to fluorescent light bulbs for large-scale lighting.

The researchers say the new lighting technology, based on field-induced polymer electroluminescent (FIPEL) technology, does not create the buzz sound associated with fluorescent light bulbs and also gives off soft, white light—not the yellowish glint from fluorescents or bluish tinge from LEDs.
