Caption: Fluorescent light tubes, 19th century artwork. US engineer Daniel McFarlan Moore (1869-1936) working in New Jersey, USA, on his gas-discharge light tubes, called Moore tubes. These were an early form of fluorescent lighting, an alternative to the incandescent light bulbs also being developed at the time. The first attempts at fluorescent lamps were carried out by Edison and Tesla in the 1890s, but it was Moore, an assistant of Edison, who produced the first commercially viable form of this technology. Artwork from the 18th volume (second period of 1896) of the French popular science weekly 'La Science Illustree'.
