Abstract

The mercury-less xenon pulsed discharge fluorescent lamps using multi pairs of electrodes are discussed. In order to avoid the constriction and to obtain a diffusive positive column, a lamp which has multi-pairs of electrodes, was proposed. By using multi pairs electrode style, Xe discharge fluorescent lamp has achieved high efficacy of 90/m/W and high luminance of 10000 cd/m2. It is found that as the pulse width becomes shorter, both lamp voltage and current increase with the same initial energy.
