The neon light itself was born in 1902 thanks to the work of French engineer and chemist Georges Claude. He took the work of Geissler and focused solely on using neon gas, using an electrical discharge to stimulate the atoms and produce the light. The Claude Neon company was subsequently formed. They became the first neon sign manufacturers to create and install signs using the technology in 1923.
Neon sign technology has advanced by leaps and bounds over the years, allowing the creation of beautiful signs and artwork too. With experimentation people discovered that different types of gas and mixtures of gasses would result in various light colours. Now there are more than 150 shades to choose from. In addition technology to provide stable currents has advanced, making signs bright and reliable.
