The crafting recipe for the Arcane Lamp, as shown in the Thaumonomicon.

The Arcane Lamp is a research option under the Artifice tab that can be purchased with 3 levels of experience after researching Nitor. It can be purchased for 3 experience levels. The lamps can be crafted at an Arcane Workbench with a daylight sensor, a block of amber, 2 iron ingots, and a piece of any colored Nitor, along with 25 Ignis and Aer Vis, which yields a single lamp. Other than lighting the immediate area, the lamp also has the ability to produce invisible sources of light within a 16 block radius if the light level is low enough for monsters to spawn. This property makes it extremely useful for lighting large areas with ease; the lamps can be quite expensive, however, if one does not have access to a large store of Amber. The Lamp itself can also be used in the crafting of the Lamp of Growth and the Lamp of Fertility, both of which are variants of the lamp that have their own special properties and uses.
