A flow of electricity through a gas, typically accompanied by emission of light; a body of gas in which this is occurring.
A broad electrical discharge from a conductor occurring when the potential difference is high but not sufficient for a spark or arc
A lamp in which the light is produced by a discharge tube
A tube containing charged electrodes and filled with a gas in which ionization is induced by an electric field. The gas molecules emit light as they return to the ground state
A luminous sparkless electrical discharge from a pointed conductor in a gas at low pressure
An electrical discharge in which current flows between an earthed pointed object and another at a different potential, or surrounding gas.
Originally: a full release or exemption from something due, especially from a debt. Now: specifically the full discharge of a person from bankrupt status.
A passage of electricity, especially through gas or vapour.
A comprehensive discharge from an obligation or liability, especially from a debt; (now) specifically (chiefly US) the comprehensive discharge of a person from bankrupt status.
Release or dismissal from military service; an instance of this.
An electrical discharge following an accumulation of static electricity.
A non-luminous, low-current discharge in a gas in which free electrons are multiplied through the avalanche effect in an applied electric field, giving rise to electrical conductivity.
An order made by a criminal court whereby an offender will not be sentenced for an offence unless a further offence is committed within a stated period
= constructive dismissal.
The dismissal of someone from the armed forces as a result of criminal or morally unacceptable actions
A gas-filled lamp or tube in which an electric discharge can be produced between two electrodes.
Discharge from military service with a favorable record
(An instance of) dismissal from employment in retaliation for actions which are protected by law, such as reporting an employer's unlawful conduct or refusing an employer's request to commit an unlawful act.
