Paper Abstract

The complexity and specialization of optical applications is calling for tailor-made solutions as can be seen in the multitude of new specialized light sources present on the market. The OSRAM LINEX™ barrier discharge system is an example, how application related requirements are already addressed on the light source level. After introduction of the technology the paper explains the lamp's optical features by means of numerical simulation which are in agreement with experimental data. Several examples like LCD backlighting or automotive signal applications demonstrate how overall system performance can be enhanced through design changes already on the light source level.
