What a nice picture! The contrast between the 405 nm laser light and the green light from the uranium glass is quite striking. I'm not sure this lamp is of a zirconium type. If I remember correctly, those low-wattage point source use a bare tungsten wire electrode instead. Zirconium is used only in larger lamps.

This not looks like a tungsten arc lamp to me.

I"m don't speak English well, and rely on online translating to write in this site.
Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I only working with the European date format (dd.mm.yyyy).

I lives in Israel, which is a 230-240V, 50hz country.

I agree, but there is no exact information about that lamp. I found these: https://www.industrialalchemy.org/articleview.php?item=3084
Probably the rod maybe tungsten too but also it may be an oxided zirconium. In other sources this lamp defined as zirconium too -- "Hydroballistics Modeling", p.310

Good observation - the tip of the central electrode may be made of zirconium which was later oxidized. I'll have to dig in my literature to see if I can find more info on this particular lamp.

Like another small lamp there is not enough information -- for lamp A2 I found only that lamps was used as audio modulated light source. For which purpose?

Possibly to record audio on movie film? Here’s the power supply I found https://www.ebay.com/itm/George-W-Gates-Arc-Lamp-2-Watt-Power-Supply-GZ2U/143301130670

Max, You are right! These lamps have two models -- with tungsten rod and with zirconium rod. I think that the letter "T" in lamp label means that that lamp is with tungsten.
