After a small sample of the nanoparticles spent 8 hours in a buffer solution under a tungsten-halogen lamp, the headspace gas above the solution was 4.6 percent hydrogen by volume - a result Armstrong calls "promising for a first trial".
A tungsten-halogen lamp is an incandescent lamp with gases from the halogen family sealed inside.
The industry's rationale for changing from tungsten-halogen to metal-halide is the latter lamp's much higher efficiency, longer life, and smaller size (figures 3 and 4.) The metal-halide lamp produces visible energy at distinct wavelengths across the spectrum with a good amount of blue and considerably less red than the tungsten-halogen lamp; its related color temperature is expected to be about 4,200 to 4,500 K (figure 5).
Tungsten-halogen lamps, first developed by General Electric in the 1950s for lighting supersonic jets, produce uniform bright light.
The installation featured 1,635 fluorescent lamps of varying lengths, 850 tungsten-halogen lamps with blue lenses, and 450 blue and white strobe lights.
