Another Route to the Ultraviolet
Incoherent excimer lamps provide intense competition for excimer lasers and other (V)UV light sources for industrial applications.
Dr. Zoran Falkenstein
Energetic ultraviolet radiation is useful in biological, physical and chemical applications such as the disinfection of drinking water and the photo-enhanced chemical vapor deposition of metallorganics and dielectric films.
These processes typically require the use of photons in the ultraviolet (λ <350 nm) or vacuum ultraviolet (λ <200 nm) spectral range. The radiation serves to excite or cleave chemical bonds and leads to the desired photoinduced reaction, mediated through radicals or other active chemical species…
