  • Stark effect

The splitting or shifting of spectral lines or energy levels caused by the application of a strong transverse electrical field. It often is studied with a canal-ray tube that has a third electrode behind the cathode that may be given a high positive potential to impose the required field upon the radiating canal-ray particles.
