Lichtenberg Figure Tree-like Disk with Lighted Base
Lichtenberg Figure Tree-like Dendritic Fractal Disk with Lighted Base
Lichtenberg Figures are branching, tree-like fractal patterns created when high voltage electrical discharges are beamed through clear acrylic bases. As power from a linear accelerator (LINAC) beams its high-energy electrons traveling at near the speed of light, they tumble and cascade through the acrylic material creating tree-like fractal patterns. The zig-zag discharge paths are "frozen in time" and can be easily seen using LED colored, lighted bases. The first Lichtenberg were discovered by Georg Christoph Lichtenberg (1742-1799) and were two dimensional.
This disk shaped Lichtenberg figure branching tree is 2 7/8" diameter with one side flattened for the base. The disc is 3/4" thick. The display base is 3" square and has three LED light colors: red, blue and green. As the lights change between settings they do produce intermediate colors as well. The base has an on/off switch and uses 3 AA batteries. The base does have an outlet for a powered adaptor. Batteries and adaptor not included.
This Lichtenberg figure ships with the square display base that contains 3 LED lights, a detailed information sheet about Lichtenberg figures and the process used to create them.
Lichtenberg figures are a great source of entertainment and enjoyment as unique science gifts and artistic novel objects for home decor, office, studios and more!
