- ‘Bear in mind as well the differences among types of bulbs: incandescent, fluorescent, and quartz-halogen.’
- ‘The most common lighting types are high-frequency fluorescent, LED, incandescent, and quartz-halogen fiber-optic.’
- ‘Because of their small size and intense light, quartz-halogen lamps have been used by lamp designers in many industrial uses, such as for headlights of automobiles and in scientific research.’
