If you look at the intensity of sunlight on a spectrum analyser, it shows a big DC component. If you look at the same thing for an artificial light, it shows a big AC component at 100Hz (120Hz in the US and, bizarrely, half of Japan). Can anyone tell me why this is, given that the frequency of the electrical supply is 50Hz (60Hz)?
