Gas discharge tubes for the Lecture of Exotic Gas Discharges


Research group Elementary Processes of Gas Discharges, Professor G. Kroesen, PhD, department Applied Physics TU/e


Several gas discharge tubes have been made that can demonstrate different phenomena that can occur in a plasma.

Key to the occurrence of the special effects in the different tubes is the purity and correct pressure of the gas that fills the tube, the shape and position of the electrodes and the shape of the glass tube.
