Abstract : This report is a brief survey of the methods available for production of low-level continuous light by simple, trouble-free self-contained devices. Some order of magnitude calculations of efficiency are presented with a brief discussion of the practical advantages and disadvantages of several light generating schemes. The most promising of these schemes are solid-state devices. (Author)
