Hmm... what shall I say: the plasma light I have reached in this experiment was the best I have ever seen in
my microwave. However, after about 3 seconds of operation (at 70Watts of microwave power), the fulminant joy of light found an end with a last and final (but much more fulminant...) big bang which unfortunately for sure did disturb the sleep of some inhabitants here in Gerlingen... ;-)

As it should sufficiently be known, I am a fan of strange experiments - that means small things
with a great effect...
Because of that, I became anxiously to do something with a lamp which sayed goodbye with a small >Plopp<...
As I'm a fan of plasma light effects and because I already have reached great results
with coils in the microwave field to produce large sparks (I also succeeded to make other things to send out light, too...), the idea was not too far away: that lamp had to be tested in my microwave oven...
Fascinating how robust the construction of those microwave oven doors are... ;-)
