Abstract
The efficacy of high efficiency lamps can be improved by recycling the unused infrared energy. This is accomplished by reflecting the infrared portion of the emitted energy back onto the emitter with a hot mirror coating on the lamp envelope. The envelopes of these lamps operate at high temperatures so that special coating designs are used which function well at elevated temperatures. The coatings can also be used with other lamp applications, such as flashlamps and color correcting or selective lamps.
