Lemon has given an interesting account of the appearance of a continuous spectrum of hydrogen extending into the visible region and having its long wave-length limit in the yellow-green. Perhaps we may be permitted to invite attention to our own observations of the voltage conditions controlling the production of this spectrum, and to a suggested explanation of its origin, which we gave in the course of a paper on “Critical Electron Energies in Hydrogen… CONTINUE READING
