About the sample
|This chemical element is a commercial sample. Argon is packed in a glass ampoule under low pressure. There is a mini Tesla coil next to it. By switching on the electric circuit, the coil generates a field with a high voltage & frequency which makes this gas glow. The push-button switch is located on the right side of the frame of the display.|
To see the noble gas glow, push the button and the coils will be active for about 30 seconds. After that, the Tesla coils will be disabled for about 5-6 min in order to protect them from overheating. This sample is a part of the private collection of Metodija Najdoski.
