Neon Sign Basics from | Part 1

Today’s modern neon sign parts are a long way from Paris, but the history of this form of lighting started with French engineer Georges Claude (b. Sept. 24, 1870, d. May  23, 1960) in 1910.   In 1897, he realized that dissolving acetylene gas into acetone would stabilize it enough to move it safely. Eventually, he realized that inert gasses would conduct electricity and produce light when currents were run through them! It was in December of 1910 that he showed the world in the first public display of a neon lamp.  His immediate intention was to use them in signs and lighting and they would soon be dubbed liquid fire.  Understandably, people would stop and stare at the spectacle for hours and it's fate for use in signs and advertising was sealed.
