Abstract

A symmetrical light intensity distribution profile is achieved by placing a pair of similar asymmetrical linear DC gas discharge lamps in parallel position but opposed in polarity. The individual asymmetrical distributions of the lamps combine in a symmetrical total intensity distribution. A desired "butterfly" or other intensity distribution profile can be achieved.
