The high-pressure discharge lamp comprises a sealed lamp vessel (1) having a quartz glass wall (2) enclosing a discharge space (3). Metal foils (4) are embedded in the wall, connected to electrode rods (6) projecting from the wall into the discharge space. The electrode rods (6) have a first part (7a) and a second part (7b) with a diameter of between 250 and 350 .mu.m and at least an envelope (7c) made of rhenium. The second part, which is positioned within the wall (2), prevents premature failure of the lamp caused by leakage.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
