We present the working characteristics of a continuous UV lamp emitting at λ=206 nm, pumped by a longitudinal glow discharge. The pressure of the working Xe-I2 gas-vapor mixture was within 0.1–10 kPa. The power deposited in the discharge was varied within 10–130 W. The current-voltage characteristics, the emission spectra in a 200–600 nm wavelength range, the line emission intensity as a function of the power deposited in the discharge plasma, and the partial pressure of xenon in the lamp were… Expand

Comparative Inactivation of Bacillus subtilis Spores Using a DBD-Driven Xenon Iodide Excilamp and a Conventional Mercury Lamp
In this paper, we compared the inactivation of Bacillus subtilis spores in water by means of a dielectric-barrier-discharge (DBD)-driven XeI* excilamp and a low-pressure mercury lamp. The main part (Expand
Real Life Application of Xenon: A Critical Review
Xenon was discovered by Scottish chemist William Ramsay and English chemist Morris Travers in July 1898 at the University College London (Ramsay, Sir William, 2015). Xenon is a chemical element withExpand

The neuroprotective efficacy of xenon in preclinical models and its safety in clinical anesthesia set the stage for the launch of randomized clinical trials to determine whether these encouraging neuroProtective findings can be translated into clinical utility. Expand


Photo-induced large area growth of dielectrics with excimer lamps
In this paper, UV-induced large area growth of high dielectric constant (Ta2O5, TiO2 and PZT) and low dielectric constant (polyimide and porous silica) thin films by photo-CVD and sol-gel processingExpand
LASER APPLICATIONS AND OTHER TOPICS IN QUANTUM ELECTRONICS: UV-VUV excimer emitter pumped by a subnormal glow discharge
Characteristics of a small-size excimer emitter operating on an Ar — Cl2 mixture excited by a subnormal glow discharge are studied. It is shown that this discharge is a source of multiwavelengthExpand
Xe(He)-I2 glow and capacitive discharge excilamps
In the present paper, Xe-I2 and He-I2 glow and capacitive discharge excilamps have been studied. These excilamps emit at iodine monatomic resonance lines in the range of 180 - 210 nm, and on XeI*Expand
