Abstract:

An opening is formed in the hand-held receptacle such that illumination generated by the light sticks is transmitted via the opening. The device can be made entirely of non-magnetic materials for use in clandestine underwater operations. The opening can be sealed with an optically transparent cover Valves can be included to provide an air-filled or evacuated medium surrounding the light sticks.
