Some of the fundamental principles of glow discharges: the structure of the discharges, cathode sputtering, and light emission, are described, including the excitation and ionization phenomena occurring in the glow discharge plasma. The glow discharge tube with a flat cathode (Grimm-style), which is commonly available for the emission spectrometric analysis, is introduced together with a table of the sensitive emission lines of various elements.
