Found out a green laser is great for viewing the electrodes and stems inside a fluorescent lamp.

Playing with this lamp here:

Westinghouse used a rudimentary form of cathode shields very similar to the old GE Mazda lamps.

NNNN!

I tryed to do this, with the T5 HE lamps to show you the cathode construction. I have discovered btw, that the long cathode of the T5 HO is longer than in the T5 HE.
Powell: These don't looks to me as cathode shields, but as anode wires, similar to the T12 HO/VHO and the GE Powergrooves T17.

I"m don't speak English well, and rely on online translating to write in this site.
Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I only working with the European date format (dd.mm.yyyy).

I lives in Israel, which is a 230-240V, 50hz country.

Having broken one the little wires go parallel to the cathodes. Westinghouse the same way...and made unique aging. That's not done now. They are like little "rods" .....

NNNN!
