Emissions patterns under different voltage pulse and emission profiles recorded at various distances from the cathode differ of low-pressure mercury discharge were analyzed. It was found that a delay characterized the different traces recorded at the begining of the pulse and increased with the increasing distance from the cathode. It was also found that the overall shape of the traces changed on moving away from the cathode. The results show that the electron density of the discharges is same under different modes of operation.
