Voltage-induced incandescent light emission from large-area graphene films was demonstrated. Stable, bright, and uniform incandescent emission with a low turn-on voltage (∼6 V) was obtained for a free-standing graphene film (0.5×1 cm2) under appropriate vacuum (0.05 Torr) or Ar protection. The emission spectra fit well to the blackbody emission model with the emission intensity being exponentially proportional to the external voltage and inversely proportional to the gas pressure. Our results indicate great promise of graphene-based incandescent emitters for flat-lighting applications.

    We find experimentally that gas-flow-induced voltage in monolayer graphene is more than twenty times of that in bulk graphite. Examination over samples with sheet resistances ranging from 307 to 1600 Ω/sq shows that the induced voltage increases with the electric resistance and can be further...
