Flashlamps are operated in sinusoidal or square-pulsed mode and discharge high current pulses (hundreds of amps) ranging in duration from hundreds of microseconds to tens of milliseconds and at repetition rates of less than one hertz to several hundred hertz. They are filled with either Krypton gas, Xenon, or a combination of the two. Krypton tends to be more efficient at lower current densities and Xenon tends to be more efficient at higher current densities. Although fill pressures typically range from a few hundred to fifteen hundred torr, they are typically sub-atmospheric to prevent non-passive failures during high power operation.
