burn-in period
Explanation:
Or time, or phase. Might tend towards "time" if they specify a number, like 60 minutes.

Focus and Alignment of Mercury and Xenon Arc Lamps
...
After installing the new lamp, turn on the power supply and allow the lamp to stabilize for 10 to 15 minutes (Important Note: always allow a new lamp to burn in for at least an hour when it is first turned on). A burn in period is necessary in order for a small pit to be etched into the anode and create a path of least resistance, which enables the arc to remain steady and not wander (flicker) during the useful lifetime of the bulb.
