Ultraviolet Irradiation
Recent studies have shown that a wide variety of such contaminants exist at trace concentrations in all water supplies and in the air. Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) is a method of disinfection that uses short-wavelength ultraviolet (UV-C) light to kill or inactivate microorganisms by destroying nucleic acids and disrupting their DNA, leaving them unable to […]
Spectroscopy Explained
The study of the interaction between matter and electromagnetic radiation is known as spectroscopy. Historically, spectroscopy originated through the study of visible light dispersed according to its wavelength, by a prism. Spectroscopic data is often represented by an emission spectrum, a plot of the response of interest as a function of wavelength or frequency.
Li-Fi Technology
Li-Fi is a technology for wireless communication between devices using light to transmit data and position. In technical terms, Li-Fi technology – visible light communication system – is capable of transmitting data at high speeds over the visible light spectrum, ultraviolet and infrared radiation. The term Li-Fi was coined by University of Edinburgh Professor Harald Haas during a TED Talk in 2011. Haas envisioned light bulbs that […]
Hydro-Optic Disinfection (HOD) UV Technology
In 2014 facing ongoing water contamination issues, Plant Bowen Water Research Center, opted for a full-scale trial of Hydro-Optic Disinfection (HOD) UV technology to help find a viable solution.
Treat Water With UV Rays
Swimming pool service professionals have long known that the water in a pool can be treated by utilizing ultraviolet (UV) rays instead of, or in addition to, pool chemicals such as chlorine. A new process has been adapted that can quickly break down pollutants in wastewater, swimming pool or drinking water without the use of […]
