Did you know, before use in watch dials …
In 1898, Austrian chemist Auer von Welsbach developed the Oslamp with a filament made of osmium, which he introduced in 1902. After only a few years, osmium was replaced by tungsten, which is more abundant, stable and cheaper. Tungsten has the highest melting point of all metals, and it increases the luminous efficacy and life of incandescent lamps.
The light bulb manufacturer Osram was founded in 1906, when three German companies, Auer-Gesellschaft, AEG and Siemens & Halske, combined their lamp production facilities. Osram derived its name from the elements of osmium and Wolfram (the latter is German for tungsten).
Used in many European vehicles!
Does anyone remember or use the software / app Wolfram Alpha? In this case, it’s related to Steven Wolfram, not tungsten.
