Scientists in Pennsylvania and the University of Minnesota, the United States, in a joint research with two Japanese universities, yesterday, that a "scientific breakthrough" based on high-intensity UV light, may be a new and powerful weapon to kill the Corona virus anywhere. Chemical exposure or high intensity ultraviolet (UV) radiation is one of the most common ways of disinfecting surfaces from bacteria and viruses. According to the BBC, "Today's Russia."
But in the case of "corona" there should be sufficiently high levels of ultraviolet radiation - 200 to 300 nanometers.
Such devices exist today, but they are very expensive, and they use mercury discharge lamps, which are bulky and short-lived, and require a large amount of energy to operate. It is also not quite ideal for combating "Covid-19".
Using theoretical modeling of a group of materials, researchers believe they have found transparent conductors, which can allow cheap and easy-to-produce LED lamps that emit ultraviolet light at a intensity high enough to kill the Corona virus.
Joseph Roth, Ph.D in Materials Science and Engineering in Pennsylvania, explained: "While the first impetus for developing transparent UV conductors was to build an economical solution to water purification, we now realize that this breakthrough discovery could provide a solution to stop Covid-19 activation in Aerosols, which can be distributed in HVAC. "
The researchers obtained seed funding to determine the "moderate zone" of UV intensity and exposure time to eliminate airborne viruses. This stage of the test will be conducted at the Biosafety Laboratory at Park University, Pennsylvania.
 The team will take and manage their results against mathematical fluid modeling and lighting simulation, to learn how to take custom UV emitters and apply them to different building ventilation systems, to prevent the spread of the Corona virus and other pathogens, through the air we breathe, and redistribute it to homes, companies, and offices.
"This research may help accelerate the return to common building spaces such as offices," said the professor of architecture in Pennsylvania, Atamtorctor.
