Abstract:

An investigation of moving striations in a neon glow discharge was conducted to determine the time difference in the occurrence of the maxima of the neon spectral lines. Data are presented in the form of oscilloscope trace photographs. These photographs were analyzed to determine the time differences in the occurrence of the maxima of the 6402A and 5944A lines and the 6402A and 6929A lines of neon. Discharge tube pressures of 1.4, 2.74 and 4.45 torr were used with a variation of discharge tube current at each pressure. No time differences were observed within an uncertainty of approximately 15 microseconds. Author
