Gallery: Scientists to Use Firefly Bioluminescence to Create Energy-Fre...


A team of scientists from Syracuse University are using nanotechnology to harness the natural bioluminescence of fireflies in order to create lighting that doesn’t need any energy to glow! By using nanotechnology, the team believe that they can create a natural bioluminescent lighting system that is 20 to 30 times more efficient than any previously made.
