They fly closer to the sun than the rest of us, and there is an incandescence about them.
This substance does not conduct electricity at ordinary temperatures, but when heated to incandescence it becomes conducting.
Only the incandescence of the metal and the flame itself were visible.
Arsenic combines with fluorine at the ordinary temperature with incandescence.
The light of incandescence is intense and white like that from metal at a white heat.
This time the carbon strip burned at incandescence for about eight minutes.
Then the dot of blue—a string of incandescence; just as had been spoken.
On passing a current through the carbon the small rod is heated to incandescence, and imparts heat to the surrounding mass.
The violent compression of this air may raise this dust to incandescence.
In fact, it appears that the higher the degree of exhaustion the easier is the incandescence produced.
The emission of visible light from a substance or object as a result of heating it to a high temperature. The color of the light emitted from solids and liquids is a function of their chemical structure and their temperature; the higher the temperature, the more intense and even the distribution of frequencies is (that is, higher temperatures create brighter and whiter light than lower temperatures). Compare fluorescence. See also blackbody radiation.
