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.

HID lighting creates light by igniting an electrical discharge between two electrodes in an air tight tiny quartz capsule filled with xenon gas.

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.
