Ultraviolet energy inactivates viral, bacterial and fungal organisms so they are unable to replicate and potentially cause disease.
The entire UV spectrum is capable of inactivating microorganisms, but UV-C energy (wavelengths of 100 – 280 nm) provides the most germicidal effect, with 265 nm being the optimum wavelength.
The majority of mode UVGI lamps create UV-C energy with an electrical discharge through a low-pressure gas (including mercury vapor) enclosed in a quartz tube, similar to fluorescent lamps.
Roughly 95% of the energy produced by these lamps is radiated at a near-optimal wavelength of 253.7 nm.
UV-C light-emitting diodes (LEDs) are emerging for use in inactivating microorganisms.
