“How can we make a wire that emits light?”

 

Electricity is something that is plentiful and available to us on a regular basis. And we know that we can convert it into something such as light. However, is it possible to make a form of wire that emits light around it? Well, let’s think about it. We know that copper is a very good conductor. Not only that, but it is also a very ductile material, allowing it to be bent and stretched into a wire.So maybe our device could include some copper, as it would allow it to conduct electricity very efficiently. But now we need something to light up from all of this electricity. Well, luckily for us, engineers have created a material called phosphor lubricant which emits light when a current passes through it. Now that we have the basics, lets build our machine. First, we should take a solid copper core covered with phosphor lubricant to act as our electrical light emitting source. Then we should encircle it with twin strands of copper wire to allow the electricity to access it. afterwards, all we need to do is apply an alternating current, And we have just made ourselves a light-producing wire! This contraption, termed electroluminescence wire, can be commonly found in a very common object, neon lights!
