Achen Handy UV emitter is a light diode emitter of pulses from the deep ultraviolet spectrum, the receipt and use of which is considered one of the promising directions in modern science.

As the developers of the new apparatus claim, its LEDs emit deep ultraviolet light with a wavelength of 280 nanometers and an optical power of 70 milliwatts.

It is assumed that virus particles are most effectively destroyed at a wavelength of 260 nanometers, but it shortens the time of use of deep ultrasound radiation.

The results of the study show that the apparatus can destroy 99.99 per cent of viruses on the surface in 30 seconds at a distance of 5 centimeters.

Now the creators of the device are looking for a manufacturer of light-diodes to be able to start serial production of the apparatus.

She believes that in the future it can be used as an air purifier, in air conditioners, etc.
