Granted the lamp is not 100% aluminum, but part of the project was to try and buy viagra in the uk make it as cheap and simple to create as possible, hence the run to the grocery store.
The aluminum "microcavity plasma lamp" is surprisingly simple to create. By bathing the foil in an acid, hundreds of thousands of micro-cavities (little holes) are created and a small amount of the aluminum is tramadol best price converted to dielectric aluminum oxide (sapphire.) Those holes are filled with a tiny amount of fluorescent gas and the cavities are all wired together. Then the whole package is sandwiched between thin sheets of www.aumm.nl glass coated with phosphor on the http://www.nextstagecapital.com/viagra-discount-prices inside and the lamp is complete.
Imagine a flat panel lamp that would hang on the wall, or be inset in the ceiling. The lamps produce about 15 lumens per watt, significantly more efficient than incandescents, but only about half as efficient as current fluorescent bulbs. But the team at the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana say they expect efficiencies of about 30 lumens per watt shortly (comparable to CFLs.)
