in other sorts of lamps. Semi-resonant start circuits are mainly restricted to use in commercial installations because of the higher initial cost of circuit components. ZIP Code (4 gE 30-Pack 48-in Medium Bi-pin (T12) 34-Watt 4100 K Cool White Fluorescent Light Bulbs. Gas has a resistance, the colder the gas, the higher the resistance, therefore you need a higher voltage with colder temperatures. As in all mercury-based gas-filled tubes, mercury is slowly adsorbed onto the glass, phosphor, and tube electrodes throughout the life of the lamp, until it can no longer function. Cool-white fluorescents have a CCT of 4100 K and are popular for office lighting. Many facilities still have older fixtures with startingswitch preheat fluorescents. When operated from DC, the starting switch is often arranged to reverse the polarity of the supply to the lamp each time it is started; otherwise, the mercury accumulates at one end of the tube.
36 This tube voltage is too low to strike the arc with cold electrodes, but as the electrodes heat up to thermionic emission temperature, the tube striking voltage falls below that of the ringing voltage, and the arc strikes. In the starter, the touching contacts short out the voltage sustaining the glow discharge, extinguishing it so the gas cools down and no longer heats the bi-metallic switch, which opens within a second or two. They requires a 10-20 times higher dose to the skin and they require more bulbs and longer exposure time. But the Crookes tube, as it came to be known, produced little light because the vacuum in it was too good and thus lacked the trace amounts of gas that are needed for electrically stimulated luminescence. Ultraviolet photons are absorbed by electrons in the atoms of the lamp's interior fluorescent coating, causing a similar energy jump, then drop, with emission of a further photon. The starter switch does not close again because the voltage across the lit tube is insufficient to start a glow discharge in the starter.

Fluorescent-lamp spectra Typical fluorescent lamp with rare-earth phosphor A typical "cool white" fluorescent lamp utilizing two rare-earth-doped phosphors, Tb 3, Ce 3: La PO4 for green and blue emission and Eu : Y 2O3 for red. His lights were reliable and sold to department stores in the New York City area. Given the higher tube voltage required anyway, these tubes can easily be made long, and even run as series strings. Even among persons not sensitive to light flicker, a stroboscopic effect can be noticed, where something spinning at just the right speed may appear stationary if illuminated solely by a single fluorescent lamp. The ballast must be resistive, and would consume about as much power as the lamp.
