Abstract : A survey of various aspects of high-power incoherent light sources, namely electrical and optical parameters and certain problems of optical pumping, is given. Standard flashlamps as well as the more recent high power ultraviolet pump lamps are discussed. The relevant numbers given allow comparison of these light sources for given optical pumping requirements. High pressure arc discharge sources are not discussed. (Author)
