    From the past 2 years, i keep experimenting on Fluorescent bulb
    technology and last month I' ve found a way to rectify a bad
    Fluorescent lamp which have its filaments going apart. But till now, I
    cannot explain how it can happen. Anybody who can explain the theory
    to me?
  2. Explain the practice; maybe someone can guess at the theory. If you
    shake a bulb with a broken filament while it's turned on, it can weld
    itself back together temporarily. Is that what you mean? If you apply
    a high enough voltage to a fluorescent with burned out filaments, it
    will probably start up and run, too.

    You'll have to refer to the phlogiston theory of fluorescen[ce|ts].

    Good Luck!
