Abstract

I HAVE made several unsuccessful attempts within the last two years to obtain a satisfactory photograph of the band spectrum of the green flame obtained when hydrogen containing a little phosphorus vapour is burnt in the air. The difficulty has mainly been that photographic plates are very insensitive in the green and the flame is not easily maintained for long periods.
