BHK requested a design for a deuterium lamp that has a higher output and greater lifetime than existing lamps on the market. The team developed a model relating to such parameter as fill composition, pressure, and geometrical measurements to the intensity and spectral characteristics of the output, and suggested and evaluated design modifications to improve performance.
