Sodium Dual-arc bulb
Dual-arc bulb.
This interesting bulb, meant for indoor plant growing operations, combines two different arc discharge tubes in one, to provide a wider spectrum of light than either type would alone. One is a high-pressure sodium arc, the other is a metal halide tube, probably containing scandium as a spectrum-enhancer.
