A high intensity discharge (HID) lamp is a lighting source energized by an electric current to create a metallic vapor and the current through the lamp causes high intensity illumination. High intensity discharge lamps require the application of a starting voltage or ignition voltage that is substantially higher than the operating voltage of the lamp. HID lamps generally include a discharge device comprising a discharge vessel containing a pair of internal spaced discharge electrodes, and a small quantity of vaporizable and ionizable material referred to as the fill material. Typically, the fill material is a sodium mercury amalgam, and it may also contain other materials such as metal halides. In operation, some of the fill material is vaporized and the voltage applied across the discharge electrodes maintain an electrical discharge through the vaporized material, which is partially ionized. The high temperature vaporized and partially ionized material emits visible light. HID lamps are also referred to as high luminance discharge lamps or high-pressure discharge lamps and since they are not only excellent in light emission efficiency relative to consumption power but also generate less amount of heat for an identical amount of light and have higher safety compared with halogen lamps. In recent years, HID lamps, and in particular, metal halide arc lamps, have been replacing halogen lamps as high-output point light sources in various applications. High intensity discharge lamps are typically used in applications where the lamp is spaced a substantial distance from the surface to be lighted, such as, a sports arena, a traffic highway interchange, a warehouse, shopping malls, atriums, or other similar applications. This type of lamp is also finding application in stage and television lighting, liquid-crystal video projector light sources, sports lighting for HDTV broadcasting, lighting in museums and art galleries by utilizing its excellent high efficacy and excellent color rendering properties.
