A neon lamp is a sealed glass tube filled with neon gas, which is one of the so-called "noble" (inert or unreactive) gases on the far right of the Periodic Table. (There are minute quantities of neon in the air around us: take a deep breath and you'll breathe in a volume of neon as big as an orange pip!)

There are electrical terminals at either end of a neon tube. At one end, there's a negative terminal ("-ve", shown blue); at the other end there's a positive terminal ("+ve", shown green).

When the tube is switched off, it contains ordinary atoms of neon gas (brown circles).

Rig the terminals up to a high-voltage power supply (about 15,000 volts—because you need a lot of "electrical force" to make things happen) and switch on, and you'll literally start pulling the neon atoms apart. Some of the atoms will lose electrons to become positively charged ions (big green dots). Being positively charged, these neon ions will tend to move toward the negative electrical terminal.

The electrons the neon atoms lose (small blue dots) are negatively charged, so they hurtle the opposite way toward the positive terminal at the other end of the tube.

In all this rushing about, atoms, ions, and electrons are constantly colliding with one another. Those collisions generate a sudden smash of energy that excites the atoms and ions and makes them give off photons of red light.

So many collisions happen with such rapidity that you get a constant buzzing of red light from the tube. You also get quite a lot of energy given off as heat. If you've ever stood near a neon light, you'll know they can get very hot. That's because the atoms are giving off quite a bit of invisible infrared radiation (in other words, heat) as well as visible radiation (better known as red light).
