Back in the day, cars used headlamps that were kind of like lanterns—drivers had to manually light a flame inside the headlamp assembly. Since 1912, electrical headlights have become more or less standard in automobiles. Modern headlamps come in many varieties including incandescent, halogen, and LED bulbs.
Traditional incandescent lights illuminate by running an electric current through a tungsten filament. The filament is the wire that runs horizontally across the middle of the bulb, and glows when it is lit. Tungsten can withstand high amounts of heat, allowing it to glow when the electrical current gets the filament as hot as 4,600 degrees Fahrenheit.
While tungsten can reach very high temperatures without catching fire, exposure to high heat can evaporate the filament, causing the bulb to darken as tungsten that has been removed from the filament through evaporation collects on the inside surface of the glass bulb. That’s where halogen comes in. Halogen headlights contain halogen gas that protects the tungsten filament by pressurizing the bulb and enhancing brightness at lower temperatures. Lower temperatures also make halogens glow with a more pleasant shade of light than conventional incandescent bulbs.
LED headlight bulbs work a little differently. LED stands for light-emitting diode, a type of semiconductor that turns electrical energy into light. Because semiconductors convert electricity into light more efficiently than incandescents or halogens, LED bulbs produce almost 50% less heat.
