Having 222-nm Far-UVC light at our disposal is the equivalent of saying the first aqueduct was 2.22 feet away from completion before washing the first germs out of Rome!
“Using photon wavelengths between 207-230nm Far-UVC as a standard in lighting and wireless data transmission
will have a larger impact on humanity than the hygienic benefits of clean water.” – John Coates
In 250 years even a slowly advancing civilization (survived by war and diseases) will go from using a transcontinental telegraph to wireless networks using germicidal light. Fermi paradox is explained when a civilization combines wireless communication and far UV germicidal light which makes such communications difficult to measure from outside the atmosphere, and impossible to detect using earth-based radio-telescopes.
Advanced life’s use of lasers, beamforming, and THz waves for communications will not waste the energy of a photon for propagating it into empty space for detection by humans. Efficient, and RF safe communications are completely indetectable at interstellar distances.
Fermi paradox might be explained when pandemics aren’t an issue anymore!
Early adopters of this measurable yet invisible Far-UVC light frequency are needed now! Just as were the early adopters in Rome that had the luxury of washing the first germs away, people are needed to adopt Far-UVC lighting wherever possible for the sake of our children.
Leaving our children better prepared than 1918 isn’t a global shutdown, and 3 million deaths before a fraction globally have been vaccinated! We have the technology to create a safe EM shield surrounding our loved ones and co-workers in occupied spaces by putting this new far-UVC light to work, reducing airborne viruses!
The Far-UVC, 222nm wavelength, is energetically equipped with 5.58eV (electron-volts) for powerful photons that sanitize air and surfaces safely when properly filtered of hazardous wavelengths longer than 230nm. These high-energy shortwave UVC photons provide an unlimited safe chemical-free solution, abundantly available sanitizer with only a 24V DC power source required for KrCL excimer lamps rated for 60 watts and below, making these perfect in remote areas dependent on solar power.
Far-UVC lighting provides a safer, more abundantly available and efficient way to control airborne viruses than the loosely bound protons in flowing water, especially when clean water is scarce in many parts of the world and dependable 110v electricity can be hard to come by in these remote areas too.
