English term or phrase: negative current/voltage characteristic
One thing all discharge lamps have in common is their negative current/voltage characteristic: a current supplied at constant voltage reaches an intensity that would destroy the lamp. Hence the need for discharge lamps to be operated by ballasts. These serve to limit the current and, in combination with e.g. starters, to ignite the lamps.

significa che per un tratto della curva caratteristica che mette in relazione la tensione applicata con la corrente che ne deriva, la derivata è negativa, cioè, al crescere della tensione la corrente scende e viceversa.
E\' un comportamento particolare di alcuni componenti tra cui le lampade a scarica (es. i \'neon\').
