A Christmas theme park in Scandinavia opens its doors to many visitors every year during Christmas season. Featured attractions include an ice gallery, where you can admire various animals carved out of ice. During the rest of the year, the premises are closed.
Due to the damp and wet rooms, mold spores and unpleasant odors are very often formed. Special UV lamps from Heraeus Noblelight can help to combat this problem.
The physical method of UV radiation is an economical and environmentally friendly alternative to chemical processes. By using special Heraeus UV lamps, ozone is generated from the atmospheric oxygen of the ambient air. For this purpose, the emitted radiation of wavelength 185 nm is used. The radiation at the longer wavelength of 254nm photolyzes the ozone into excited oxygen, which oxidizes the long chain molecules. That way, mold can be killed and unpleasant mold odors are broken down.
The ultraviolet radiation covers the wavelength range from 100 to 380 nm. The disinfection with UV low- pressure lamps uses the wavelength in the UVC range of 254 nm, the ozone production the wavelength 185 nm.

Future electronic components to be printed like newspapers
20.07.2018 | Purdue University
A new manufacturing technique uses a process similar to newspaper printing to form smoother and more flexible metals for making ultrafast electronic devices.
The low-cost process, developed by Purdue University researchers, combines tools already used in industry for manufacturing metals on a large scale, but uses...
For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.
To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...
For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.
Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...
Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.
A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...
Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.
"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
