Light-Emitting Pickles
Vollmer, M.; Mollmann, K-P.
Physics Education, v50 n1 p94-104 Jan 2015
We present experiments giving new insights into the classical light-emitting pickle experiment. In particular, measurements of the spectra and temperatures, as well as high-speed recordings, reveal that light emission is connected to the polarity of the electrodes and the presence of hydrogen.
