Efficient Disinfection of Tap and Surface Water with Single High Power 285 nm LED and Square Quartz Tube
A small water disinfection system based on the combination of a strong single 25 mW LED with a wavelength of 285 nm and a short quartz tube with an outer rectangular cross section is presented. For…
