How the UVC light works:
UV-C technology used in the Breathe EZ UVC Light is one of many electromagnetic frequencies emanating from the sun. Like other waveforms, its properties are unique to its wavelength. To synthesize this frequency, a glass tube is evacuated and refilled with argon at far below atmospheric pressure. Added to this is a small amount of mercury. When the mixture is energized (excited) it creates a glowing plasma of electrons that pass through the mercury vapor.
As they strike mercury atoms, a mercury electron is liberated at a frequency representative of mercury's spectral line, which is 253.7nm. The dominant emission (>90%) from these lamps is UV-C energy. The "C" frequency of the electromagnetic UV family has, amongst other things, germicidal effects.
Microorganisms are simple organic structures that readily absorb the UV-C wavelength, causing photo-disassociation (destruction). A microbes DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) is first to be adversely affected due to its weaker molecular bonds. In hundredths of a second, it suffers irreparable damage. The subsequent loss of genetic instructions causes cell death and/or the inability to replicate, rendering them harmless.
Continuous exposure causes uninterrupted degradation, such as the sun does, only significantly faster. Thus, the UV-C light kills mold spores and bacteria extremely effectively. With UV-C technology it is possible to destroy more than 99.99% of all pathogens within seconds, without the addition of chemicals, without harmful side effects, inexpensively, highly efficiently and reliably.
