 GE Consumer & Industrial Lighting: Ask Us: FAQs - Ballasts and Fluorescent Tubes
Fluorescent light bulbs (including compact fluorescents) are more energy-efficient than regular bulbs because of the different method they use to produce light.
A ballast is an electrical component used with a fluorescent bulb (or mercury vapor lamp or arc lamp) to conduct electricity at each end of the tube.
In a fluorescent bulb, when the gas is excited by electricity, it emits invisible ultraviolet light that hits the white coating inside the fluorescent bulb.

 How Things Work - Fluorescent Lamps
Some ultraviolet fluorescent tubes are simply the mercury discharge tubes (as in a normal fluorescent tube) but without any phosphor coating on the inside of the tube and with a quartz glass tube that transmits 254 nanometer light.
When this fluorescent powder is exposed to ultraviolet light, it absorbs the light energy and reemits some of it as visible light, a process called "fluorescence." The missing light energy is converted to thermal energy, making the tube slightly hot.
The spectrum of light from a fluorescent lamp is not simple or featureless--many wavelengths are essentially missing and the intensities of the remaining wavelengths don't vary smoothly with wavelength.

 Video History Project: Resources - Tool Description
The vidicon tube of a camera must be light sensitive in order to overate; however the camera must always be protected from exposure to excessively bright light.
The camera collects light reflected from objects and focused by the lens on the vidicon tube surface inside the camera and converts this light energy into electrical energy.
Although the image on the vidicon tube exists as a whole, through the scanning process of the camera the image is broken down into 525 horizontal lines; the scanning beam of the camera reads across each horizontal line from left to right producing a continuously varying electrical signal.

 Photomultiplier Tubes on GlobalSpec
Photomultiplier tubes are used in applications where rapid detection of light or low light detection is necessary.
Photomultiplier tubes consist of an evacuated envelope with a photocathode that emits electrons when exposed to light.
Some types of photomultipliers are designed to filter out some of the noise, which would negatively impact upon their ability to detect light.

 Light Gas Gun
Before the firing button is pressed, the gun is configured as in the top drawing: gunpowder is loaded in the breech, the piston in the pump tube is directly in front of the gunpowder, and the hydrogen gas is trapped between the piston and the rupture diaphragm, which is located inside the high-pressure coupling.
When the gun is fired, the sequence of events goes like this (Anything other than this sequence would constitute an unwelcome situation of one degree or another, all of which are basically evil.): The gunpowder is ignited and pushes the piston down the pump tube at high velocity.
This highly stylized diagram of the light-gas gun shows the basic principles behind its operation.

 Layman's Desciption of the Ram Accelerator
The projectile is injected into the tube at supersonic velocities by a conventional light gas gun.
Unlike light gas guns, mass drivers, and railguns, the ram accelerator stores its energy source (combustible gas) in the launch tube itself.
There are tricks you can play, such as heating the propellant gas so it can expand faster, or using low molecular weight gas, so that more of the energy goes into accelerating the projectile rather than the gas (hence the term "light gas guns").

 "Fluorescent lighting a radiant choice!" by treeoflife, grip, and burn1 - Marijuana Growing
What makes the difference in the quality of the light is the white stuff (can't remember the name for it) that coats the inside of the glass tube, as it is what "produces" the light same as the phosphor in a tv tube.
There's one tube which has an outstanding quality of light, and the reason the quality is so good is that they use 6 different substances or ingredients in their "white stuff" where normally only 2 to 3 are used.
Most tubes produced _very_ uneven light (which cannot be detected by human eye though), meaning the quality of light in those tubes is actually not that good.

 Gas Discharge Lamps, Ballasts, and Fixtures
The arc tube's discolorations absorb light from the arc, causing the arc tube to overheat, the sodium vapor pressure becomes excessive, and the arc cannot be maintained.
Because of the unusual appearance of the light from gas discharge tubes, quacks and con artists also have used and are using this technology as part of expensive useless devices for everything from curing cancer to contacting the dead.
Fluorescent lamps are a special class of gas discharge lamps where the electric current produces mostly invisible UV light which is turned into visible light by a special phosphor coating on the interior of the tube.

 ChemTeam: Cathode Ray Tube History
1876 Eugen Goldstein shows that the radiation in a vacuum tube produced when an electric current is forced through the tube starts at the cathode; Goldstein introduces the term cathode ray to describe the light emitted.
As concerning the nature of the cathode ray, the Germans tended to the explanation that cathode rays were a wave (like light), whereas the British tended to believe that the cathode ray was a particle.
Philipp von Lenard develops a cathode-ray tube with a thin aluminum window that permits the rays to escape, allowing the rays to be studied in the open air.

 Jinhui Compact Fluorescent Bulb -- Manufacturer of Compact Fluorescent Light Bulb from China
Selecting the light colour for many areas of application, the choice of the correct light is not based on clearly defined standards, as is the case with illuminance or colour rendering properties for example.
One of the most important aspects of saving energy lighting design is to determine the number of luminaires required, based on a given illuminance value......
Compact bulbs generate more than 80% of all the artificial light but consume only 50% of the energy needed for lighting.

 General Spectroscopy Overview
Other photodetectors include imaging tubes (e.g., television cameras), which can measure a spatial variation of the light across the surface of the photocathode, and microchannel plates, which combine the spatial resolution of an imaging tube with the light sensitivity of a photomultiplier.
The first sources of spectral emission lines were simply arc lamps, or another form of electrical discharge in a sealed tube containing gas in which the pressure was kept so low that a significant portion of the radiation was emitted in the form of discrete lines.
The Geissler discharge tube, of which the neon lamp used in advertising signs provides an example, is such a source.

 Olympus Microscopy Resource Center: Photomicrography - Interactive Flash Tutorials - Photomultiplier Tubes
A photomultiplier tube, useful for light detection of very weak signals, is a photoemissive device in which the absorption of a photon results in the emission of an electron.
Photomultipliers acquire light through a glass or quartz window that covers a photosensitive surface, called a photocathode, which then releases electrons that are multiplied by electrodes known as metal channel dynodes.
Photomultipliers produce a signal even in the absence of light due to dark current arising from thermal emissions of electrons from the photocathode, leakage current between dynodes, as well as stray high-energy radiation.

 Howstuffworks "Are fluorescent bulbs really more efficient than normal light bulbs?"
There are electrodes at both ends of a fluorescent tube, and a gas containing argon and mercury vapor is inside the tube.
The problem with incandescent light bulbs is that the heat wastes a lot of electricity.
Heat is not light, and the purpose of the light bulb is light, so all of the energy spent creating heat is a waste.

 Adelaide Aquariums catalogue: aquarium lighting, fluorescent tubes and more
Fluorescent light tubes for aquaria differ from normal household fluorescent tubes in their spectrum and intensity.
Units to hold 2 tubes are available in some sizes, however, due to their cost, we recommend you consider aqua-one mirrored units, glo-mat units or compact flourescents for applications requiring greater light intensity.
Although normal household tubes will fit in most aquarium light units, their use is not recommended as they give an unpleasant murky appearance and promote the growth of algae.

 New Page 3
Francis Hauksbee devised experiments that eliminated the barometric tube, and indeed the vacuum, and produced a spectacular display of light.
He saw the light objects moving towards the electrics and therefore he assumed that the attractive force was due to the electrics and that the electrics acted on the attracted objects, but that the attracted objects did not attract the electrics.
He intuitively guessed, that the light display is due to the friction between the glass and the little drops of mercury.

 Booster Neutrino Experiment - Photomultiplier Tubes
Photomultiplier tubes (PMTs) turn light signals into electrical signals by means of the photoelectric effect, a quantum mechanical phenomenon in which a particle of light (a photon) hits a metal surface (the photocathode) and causes an electron to be ejected from the surface.
Each of the 1500 tubes in MiniBooNE's tank underwent a detailed testing procedure, designed to find the tube's optimal operating voltage and other response characteristics.
Knocking out an electron from the photocathode is just the first step in the light-to-electrical signal process.
