This resource, part of the Spectroscopy Lab Suite, simulates optical transitions in a Fluorescent light. In this illustration, the transitions between bands in the phosphor coating of the light are shown. The phosphor is excited by discharge in a mercury gas. The energy levels and transitions in the phosphor material can be changed.
