Low-pressure mercury lamps are commonly used for germicidal applications. The germicidal effect is due to the emission of light at 254 nm, which leads to the destruction of the most waterborne bacteria and viruses. The Microwave Plasma UV Lamp (MPUVL) is a new technology for generating a high intensity UV light that can be also controlled to produce the Ozone operating wavelength of 185 nm. The microwave power is injected into a resonant cavity and then transferred via a quartz tube wall into… CONTINUE READING
