In mercury arc discharge lamps electrodes consisting of a tungsten rod and emission material (sintered mixture of tungsten powder and alkaline-earth metal oxides) pressed on it in the form of a cylinder are used. In the process of lamp operation, the oxides are evaporated from the emission material surface, move in the background gas and are deposited at… CONTINUE READING
