A strobe light or stroboscopic lamp, commonly called a strobe, is a device used to produce regular flashes of light. It is one of a number of devices that can be used as a stroboscope. The word originated from the Greek strobos, meaning "act of whirling." A typical commercial strobe light has a flash energy in the region of 10 to 150 joules, and discharge times as short as a few milliseconds, often resulting in a flash power of several kilowatts. Larger strobe lights can be used in “continuous” mode, producing extremely intense illumination.

  • A strobe light or stroboscopic lamp, commonly called a strobe, is a device used to produce regular flashes of light. It is one of a number of devices that can be used as a stroboscope. The word originated from the Greek strobos, meaning "act of whirling." A typical commercial strobe light has a flash energy in the region of 10 to 150 joules, and discharge times as short as a few milliseconds, often resulting in a flash power of several kilowatts. Larger strobe lights can be used in “continuous” mode, producing extremely intense illumination. The light source is commonly a xenon flash lamp, or flashtube, which has a complex spectrum and a color temperature of approximately 5,600 kelvins. To obtain colored light, colored gels may be used.

  • Per luce stroboscopica si intende una luce che proviene da fonti intermittenti, che possono essere utilizzate per localizzare un punto cospicuo (ad esempio, nella subacquea, la cima di ancoraggio dell'imbarcazione). Possono essere generate da una semplice lampadina che si accende e spegne ad un intervallo di tempo prestabilito e ravvicinato, oppure da una scarica elettrica attraverso un tubo contenente gas (esattamente come il lampo di un flash elettronico).
