neon lamp

Definitions

  • WordNet 3.6
    • n neon lamp a lamp consisting of a small gas-discharge tube containing neon at low pressure; luminescence is produced by the action of currents at high frequencies that are wrapped a few turns around the tube

In science:

The spectral dispersion has been measured using a Neon lamp and the width of one spectral resolution element was determined using laser illumination.
Modal noise prediction in fibre-spectroscopy I: Visibility and the coherent model
The hollow cathode lamp was operated with between 130 Pa and 250 Pa of argon or neon as a carrier gas for the discharge with an admixture of between 0.5 Pa and 10 Pa.
Accurate transition rates for the 5p - 5s transitions in Kr I
This problem was partly overcome when the partial pressure of krypton in the discharge was reduced by using a neon-krypton mixture in the hollow cathode lamp.
Accurate transition rates for the 5p - 5s transitions in Kr I
The transition data in neon and other noble gases are needed for plasma physics and studies of discharges with many industrial applications in lamps and gas lasers.
