The processes in which we ageing the xenon lamp called Electro-polishing. 
Electropolishing,  is an electrochemical process that removes material from a metallic workpiece. It is used to polish, passivate, and deburr metal parts. In our case the Xenon Lamp Test chambers operate lamp at high repetition rate (before shipping to end customer) to smooth the electrodes surface.
 
 Is it effective for Bulbs?
 Electropolishing is effective in treating the carbide precipitation condition that occurs in the heat-affected zone during welding. It also improves the chrome to iron ratio on the surface which greatly improves the corrosion resistance. When it comes to lamps electropolishing is highly important considering the high temperature during ignition and Regular operation
 

Main benefits of electropolishing (in general) :

•Deburring
•Micro finishing
•Corrosion Resistance
Fatigue life Improvement

“xenon flash lamps are used for stroboscopes, applying a periodic sequence of pulses. Here, they usually need to be fired with a substantial repetition rate. They should thus be optimized for that mode of operation”
