Neon (Ne) is a colorless, odorless, and inert gas that is most commonly known for its use in lighting and advertising signs. It is a rare gas that makes up approximately 0.0018% of the Earth’s atmosphere. Neon was first discovered in 1898 by Sir William Ramsay and Morris Travers through the study of liquefied air.
In addition to its iconic use in signs, Neon has a variety of other applications. Due to its low reactivity, it is commonly used as a shielding gas in welding and other high-temperature industrial processes. Neon is also used in the medical field as a cryogenic refrigerant and as an indicator gas for testing the effectiveness of ventilation systems. In the scientific community, Neon is used as a plasma for scientific research, specifically in the field of plasma physics.

Neon is commonly used in lighting applications such as neon signs and fluorescent lighting. Its distinctive bright red-orange color is ideal for creating eye-catching signs and displays.
Neon is used in cryogenics to cool materials to extremely low temperatures. Its low boiling point makes it ideal for use in cryogenic refrigeration systems.
Neon is used as a shielding gas in welding, where it helps to protect the weld from atmospheric contamination and prevent oxidation.
Neon is used in the medical industry in gas lasers and cryogenic refrigeration systems. It is also used in neonatal incubators and to detect airflow in respiratory systems.
Neon is used in scientific research as a plasma source for ion implantation and as a coolant in nuclear reactors.
Neon is used in the automotive industry for neon lighting, brake lights, and turn signals.
Neon is used in the aviation industry for high-voltage indicators and for lighting instruments on aircraft.
Neon is used in the glass industry to create unique and colorful glass sculptures and artwork.
