Abstract : In the present report, we are primarily concerned wtih atomic proceses in a high pressure gas discharge. The teoretical endeavour is highlighted in a detailed calculation of spectral line profile, which are essential to meaningfully model an arc lamp performance. We also examine the effect of neon as a buffer gas in a high pressure cesium discharge tube. Under the condiction of comparable cesium and neon pressures, we concluded that neon buffer gas is beneficial to the overall lamp performance. The detailed discussion can be found in Reference 2.
