Tunable Laser Determines Best UV Wavelengths for Germ Eradication

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
GAITHERSBURG, Md., July 31, 2020 — While awaiting full access to their labs due to COVID-19 restrictions, scientists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have taken the time to report on research conducted in 2012 on the disinfection of drinking water using ultraviolet (UV) light. The research was published online in July 2020 by the Review of Scientific Instruments. The NIST scientists developed a system that uses a portable, tunable laser to deliver a well-controlled UV beam, which a University of Colorado Boulder (UC Boulder) team then used to test UV wavelengths to learn which were most...Read full article
