1880 – Thomas Edison receives a patent for his incandescent lamp

An incandescent light bulb, incandescent lamp or incandescent light globe is an electric light with a wire filament heated until it glows.

Thomas Edison began serious research into developing a practical incandescent lamp in 1878.

Edison’s version was able to outstrip all others because of a combination of three factors: an effective incandescent material, a higher vacuum than others were able to achieve and a high resistance that made power distribution from a centralized source economically viable.
