The use of high-energy UV light reduces the germ load on packaging surfaces by up to 99.9%. This clearly prolongs the shelf life of foods such as yoghurt, curd or milk.
Also your nicely wrapped Easter eggs benefits from it cause not only packaging materials like cups, caps, cans, bags, glasses or bottlenecks can efficiently be disinfected with UV light but also foils and sealing foils.
Just a few seconds of the intensive, yet cold, light is enough to dispose of microorganisms such as bacteria, yeast and fungi.
Compared to chemical and thermal methods, UV light radiation treatment is a very reliable, economic and, above all, environmentally friendly method and hence especially suitable for the processing of organic products, chocolate or milk powder.

Nuclear fusion: wrestling with burning questions on the control of 'burning plasmas'

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.
Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...
Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.
Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...
Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.
In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...
On Saturday, 10 November 2018, the research icebreaker Polarstern will leave its homeport of Bremerhaven, bound for Cape Town, South Africa.
When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure
Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...
