About Pulsed Light
What is Pulsed Light?
Pulsed Light is high-energy light delivered in fractions of a second. It’s a simple concept with profound ramifications because of its ability to produce megawatt of peak power while generating very little heat.
How is Pulsed Light Used?
Pulsed Light has been proven to be effective in many applications where high energy is needed to create a chemical change in a target, but where high temperatures would damage critical materials involved.
It’s been a little over a year since I began writing about the many different ways Pulsed Light can help protect us against COVID-19, from decontamination of airport security bins to safety in food processing. If you’re new to the subject, Pulsed Light uses high-energy bursts of UV-C light, and this type of light can kill or deactivate virtually all pathogens on a surface, when applied for enough time and with sufficient energy. This includes the coronavirus behind the current pandemic. This unique capability of UV-C light has led to a flurry of research and development over the past year,...
