Français : Photographie Kirlian
English: Kirlian photography refers to a form of photogram made with a high voltage. It is named after Semyon Kirlian, who in 1939 accidentally discovered that if an object on a photographic plate is connected to a source of high voltage, small corona discharges (created by the strong electric field at the edges of the object) create an image on the photographic plate. Kirlian's work, from 1939 onward, involved an independent rediscovery of a phenomenon and technique variously called "electrography," "electrophotography," and "corona discharge photography." The Kirlian technique is contact photography, in which the subject is in direct contact with a film placed upon a metal plate charged with high voltage, high frequency electricity.
Français : Le procédé dit photographie Kirlian (ou effet Kirlian) a été découvert accidentellement en 1939 par le technicien russe Semyon Kirlian et sa femme Valentina Kirlian. Les clichés Kirlian montrent un halo lumineux autour d'un objet.
