Production of photons in the bactericidal effect of transient electric arcs in aqueous systems.


The radiation in the visible and ultraviolet regions from submerged, transient electrical arcs was measured with a K(3)Fe(C(2)O(4))(3) chemical actinometer and was compared to the bactericidal effect obtained with the same electrical arrangements. Photon production and bactericidal effect were obtained at lower voltages with a smaller electrode separation… (More)
