Abstract
A high pressure arc lamp capable of producing over ten million lumens is presented. The arc's unique cooling allows this type of arc to operate at continuous power ten times greater than any other. Spectral data is presented that shows a white light continuum with strong near infrared spectral lines. Continuous operation and millisecond pulses are outlined. Examples include a 3 by 5 meter area illuminated to 400 klux and a 6 m diameter parabola that produces a 2 degree beam angle and a peak of 4 billion candle power.
