OSRAM Licht AG is a multinational lighting manufacturer headquartered in Munich, Germany. It is a world-leading lighting manufacturer.OSRAM was founded in 1919 by the merger of the lighting businesses of Auergesellschaft, Siemens & Halske and Allgemeine Elektrizitäts-Gesellschaft . On 5 July 2013, OSRAM was spun off from Siemens, the listing of the stocks began on 8 July 2013 on Frankfurt Stock Exchange. Wikipedia.

The invention relates to a circuit arrangement for operating a load, comprising an input for supplying an alternating system input voltage, a rectifier circuit, a converter circuit which converts the alternating system input voltage rectified by the rectifier circuit into an output voltage, a control circuit for controlling the converter circuit, and a linear regulating circuit which sets a predefined load current on the load, said load current being a direct current. The control circuit controls the converter circuit in such a way that the intensity of the load current is reduced when the output voltage is at a minimum.

The invention relates to a lighting device (1) with an excitation light source (2) and a wavelength conversion arrangement. The wavelength conversion arrangement is designed such that the excitation light (3) is not just wavelength-converted into converted light but also additionally reflected as reflected light (3) in a controlled and at least partly unconverted manner, i.e. spectrally unchanged, at least temporarily. For this purpose, the wavelength conversion arrangement has at least one reflective element (7) in order to deflect the reflected light (3) onto a reflected light path which is spatially separated from the excitation light path and the converted light path. The converted light is separated from the excitation light and combined with the deflected reflected light (3) using a dichroic mirror (4).
