Grid-leak detector

A grid-leak detector is a thermionic valve (UK, Australia, NZ etc.), or vacuum tube (USA), circuit used in older vacuum tube AM radio receivers, which served as a combination amplifier and detector (rectifier) to extract the audio signal from the modulated radio frequency signal.

Incandescent light bulb

An incandescent light bulb, incandescent lamp or incandescent light globe is an electric light which produces light with a wire filament heated to a high temperature by an electric current passing through it, until it glows (see Incandescence).
