Abstract

Improvement of the efficacy of high-intensity discharge lamps and, for instance, the development of Mercury free discharges require a good understanding of the power balance and loss factors involved. Comprehensive measurements from the ultraviolet until the deep infra red are mandatory in order to separate the role of different lamp components. They are normally not possible in a development environment. The objective is therefore to develop a simple, quick method with standard measurement techniques. Using Mercury free lamps as example, a method is derived to extract the respective loss factors and contributions from wall temperature measurements in the middle of the discharge vessel and visible power measurements.
