Incandescent bulbs generally contain an inert gas such as Argon. This simply resists the filaments tendency to burn up. Halogen lamps contain a halogen gas such as chlorine or flourine in the place of the inert gas.Flourescent lights generally contain a small amount of mercury gas. A electrical current through the mercury causes the atoms to emit ultra-violet light. This light is converted to visible light. Please also note that for "Specialty" use in different experimental purposes in hi-tech laboratories, now a days several very special types of bulbs are being used which contains mixtures of so many inert gases. They are very costly also.
