Re: Geissler and/or Neon Tube in Microwave Oven?
Original poster: G Hunter <dogbrain_39560@xxxxxxxxx>
An old method for testing a microwave oven is to place
a conventional lightbulb base-down in a cup of
water--just so the metal base is immersed. Stick the
bulb & cup in the oven and fire it up on "high". A
frosted bulb will give a nice blue or lavender glow.
A clear glass bulb reveals spark-like discharges
around the filament along with the bluish glow. This
is due to the rarefied inert gas (probably argon)
filling in tungsten lamps. I'm confident a Geissler
or neon tube will glow like a champ.
