Prof Colin Bailey discusses the graphene lightbulb on BBC News 
A new material called graphene is being used in a light bulb which could see energy bills reduced by around 10%. Graphene - a type of carbon - was discovered by two Russian scientists in Manchester University in 2004. It is stronger than steel, but can conduct electricity and heat more effectively.
