Krypton/Xenon Plasma Globe Mixtures

Krypton/Xenon Plasma Globes

This mixture of Krypton and Xenon was made up and photographed over Christmas 2008. The Globe was photographed with a Canon Rebel XSi Digital Camera at ISO speeds of 800 & 1600 with various shutter speeds. The globe was purged with Argon before the Krypton and Xenon were introduced. I believe the purple color that exists is due to poor purging of the Argon during the Krypton/Xenon filling process. The globe lost its charge when the seal failed in the fill tubing and we never had a chance to permanently seal it. Fortunately, we took the pictures!
