    Scientists Support Use of UVC Light to Reduce SARS-CoV-2 Transmission Indoors

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    Experts in the fields of virology, immunology, aerosols, architecture, and physics surveyed the possible methods to prevent SARS-CoV-2 propagation in indoor spaces. Based on the survey results, they recommend the use of UVC light as a short-term, easily deployable, affordable way to limit virus spread in the current pandemic.

    The study, published in ACS Nano, was undertaken by scientists at the Institute of Photonic Sciences (ICFO), the University of the Basque Country, Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, and the University of Southampton. It discusses currently available UVC sources, such as fluorescent lamps, microcavity plasmas, and LEDs, as well as alternative, nontraditional paths to UVC light generation. The researchers…
