The discovery of neon
The Discovery of Neon

  • Discovered by Sir William Ramsay and Morris M. Trevars in 1898

  • Discovered the element through an experiment involving liquefied air

  • Sir William Ramsay and Morris M. Trevars are also credited to be the founders of Krypton in 1898


Heinrich geissler
Heinrich Geissler

  • Invented the Geissler tube in 1855

  • Were used with electrical generators to conduct experiments

  • These tubes enabled gasses to glow (would use low pressure and voltage from the electrical generators)


Georges claude
Georges Claude

  • Developed the first neon signs

  • Claude patented the first neon lighting tube in 1915

  • First showed his work in Paris where he displayed two of his glass tubes

  • Claude is most famous for not only creating but also selling neon-filled glass tubes in the shapes of letters


Interesting facts
Interesting Facts!

  • Neon is the fourth most abundant element in the entire universe!!

  • Only 0.0018% of the world’s atmosphere in made of neon

  • You can see a neon sign from up to 300 or 400 feet away (another reason why neon signs are so affective).

  • Neon derives from the word “neos” in Greek

  • “Neos” means new gas
