With the advent of new technology a company named Indigo- Clean has created lights that constantly disinfect the surroundings.

 


Working of these bulbs


The 405nm of light emitted from these bulbs are reflected on the walls, penetrating into micro organisms.

The light emitted by the bulb targets molecules called prophyrins inside bacteria.

The light is then absorbed and the molecules produce ROS (Reactive Oxygen Species) inside the cell.

ROS inactivates bacteria, thereby preventing them from re-populating the space.
