Existing technology makes use of the bacterial effect of UV-C light through UV-C disinfection.
Microorganisms are microscopically small. They are everywhere and have an extremely high metabolism. For example, in hot and humid weather the number of molds and bacteria increases exponentially.
Furthermore, microorganisms produce mucus substances that are deposited on surfaces and can contaminate food and cause microbial decay of the
The cell nucleus of microorganisms contains thymine, a chemical element of the DNA / RNA. This element absorbs UV-C light at a specific wavelength of 253.7 nm and changes to such an extent (formation of thymine dimers) that the cell is no longer capable of multiplying and surviving.
