This was Professor Nernst, the inventor of a well-known electric lamp and a man who had always violently hated the British.
The source of light—the filament of a Nernst lamp—was moved about in a plane 120 cm.
All other incandescent lamps and the Nernst lamps are supplied through transformers from the 60-cycle lighting system.
A transverse difference of electric potential (Nernst effect).
He has trained in his laboratory Arrhenius, Nernst, and many others of almost equal eminence.
The Nernst lamp, therefore (fig. 17), consists of a slender rod of the mixed oxides attached to platinum wires by an oxide paste.
Another type of filament lamp was developed by Nernst in 1897.
Nernst in his definition substitutes "unit difference of osmotic pressure" for "unit difference of concentration."
The arrangement of the larger type of Nernst lamp can be readily seen from the drawing, Fig. 52c.
No advantage is obtained by over-running a Nernst lamp, this only shortening its life without increasing the light.
