A device for demonstrating the pressure of light is here described. With present-day techniques it is not only possible to produce a gas pressure sufficiently low to reduce the radiometer effects to a negligible value compared with the light pressure effect, but it is also possible to maintain such a vacuum in a sealed-off tube for long periods of time.
