The first incandescent electric light was made in 1800 by Humphry Davy, an English scientist. He experimented with electricity and invented an electric battery. When he connected wires to his battery and a piece of carbon, the carbon glowed, producing light. This is called an electric arc.
Much later, in 1860, the English physicist Sir Joseph Wilson Swan (1828-1914) was determined to devise a practical, long-lasting electric light. He found that a carbon paper filament worked well, but burned up quickly. In 1878, he demonstrated his new electric lamps in Newcastle, England.
The inventor Thomas Alva Edison (in the USA) experimented with thousands of different filaments to find just the right materials to glow well and be long-lasting. In 1879, Edison discovered that a carbon filament in an oxygen-free bulb glowed but did not burn up for 40 hours. Edison eventually produced a bulb that could glow for over 1500 hours.
Lewis Howard Latimer (1848-1928) improved the light bulb by inventing a carbon filament (patented in 1881); Latimer was a member of Edison's research team, which was called "Edison's Pioneers." In 1882, Latimer developed and patented a method of manufacturing his carbon filaments.
In 1903, Willis R. Whitney invented a treatment for the filament so that it wouldn't darken the inside of the bulb as it glowed. In 1910, William David Coolidge (1873-1975) invented a tungsten filament which lasted even longer than the older filaments. The incandescent bulb revolutionized the world.
Hi! I think that the most famous inventor would be Thomas Edison, he invented the light bulb, but its really based on your opinion.
During the 18th n 19th century, (the industrial revolution)
Inventions of Thomas Edison like the light bulb contributed to the Second Industrial Revolution.
The Industrial Revolution occurred in the 19th century. Thomas Edison invented the phonograph, the incandescent light bulb, the motion picture changing the entertainment industry and home life forever. Peter Goldmark invents color television in 1940

Joseph Wilson Swan had invented the first light bulb in england, as Thomas Edison was invented the light bulb in America.
The first glass light bulb was invented in 1841 by Frederick DeMoleyns. However the first electric lamp was invented in 1806.
Light bulb, airplane, car, telephone.
Robert Hooke invented the first light microscope
English industrialists had an advantage during the industrial revolution in part due to English government policies. Taxes were relatively fair and light, England had developed a stable and well organized banking system and the British government was a stable one. All of these benefited the growth of industries in England in the industrial revolution.
in 1809 first light bulb was invented by humphry davy
The first traffic light was invented in December 10, 1868. The electric traffic light was invented in 1912. The Automatic Traffic light was invented in 1927.
Candles and gas lanterns were used at night before electricity.
