Abstract

When modelling high pressure discharges assuming Local Thermal Equilibrium (LTE) greatly reduces the complexity of the problem. This requires of course, that the assumptoin of LTE holds. We examine an LTE model of a metal halide lamp containing dysprosium iodide and compare the results with experiments looking for possible invalidation of the model. Significant deviations are found from experimental results.
