Microwave lamps

Microwave lamps are lamps in which the light is produced by radiation from sulphur excited by microwaves in the presence of argon gas.



They offer a high efficiency of approximately 100 lm/W. The sulphur output has a correlated colour temperature of 6500 K and a colour rendering index above 80. The lamp is mercury free, has unequalled colour stability, superior lumen maintenance, short turn-on time, low infrared radiation, very low ultra-violet radiation, and long system life.


Their high lumen output make them suitable for indirect lighting often using light distribution system such as hollow light guides. They are very new lamps with limited applications so far.
