Abstract

Zirconium-oxide concentrated-arc lamps have been enclosed in argon-filled, water-cooled jackets provided with rocksalt or thallium bromide-iodide windows. The arcs, so altered, have operated trouble-free for thousands of hours as highly satisfactory infrared spot sources, particularly useful in infrared microspectroscopy.
