  • Publication number: 20210290972
    Abstract: The invention relates to a body illumination system comprising one or more light sources, said light sources being configured for emitting light in a wavelength range of 410-470 nm. The system is configured for exposing to said emitted light a surface area of 0.5-2.0 m2 of said body such that the power density of said emitted light on said surface area of said body is in the range of 20-120 mW/cm2, more preferably 30-100 mW/cm2. Alternatively, the system is configured for exposing to said emitted light a surface area of 10-60 cm? of said body such that the power density of said emitted light on said surface area of said body is in the range of 10-30 mW/cm2. The body illumination system is for use in treating physical dysfunction, such as hypertension and erectile dysfunction.

  • Publication number: 20200332689
    Abstract: A system for removing particulate matter from the gas in a gas discharge laser includes one or more nonwoven screens which are optimized for, among others, manufacturability and feature integration. The nonwoven screens are configured for precisely directing the flow to optimize the separation of particles from the gas flow and provide sufficient surface area for improved dust adherence.

  • Patent number: 7385211
    Abstract: A method of generating extreme ultraviolet radiation, wherein the radiant medium is a plasma generated by processing a basic material, and the basic material distribution of the radiant medium consists at least of one halogenide of the metals lithium (Li), indium (In), tin (Sn), antimony (Sb), tellurium (Te), aluminum (Al) and/or a halogen 5 and/or an inert gas, with the exception of halogenides on the basis of lithium (Li) and chlorine (Cl) as well as fluorine (F).

  • Publication number: 20070159042
    Abstract: The invention relates to a lighting device comprising a lamp comprising a burner with an ionizable filling and an amount of mercury contained herein, having at least one mercury absorbing/adsorbing and/or blocking means located outside the burner for the fixation of mercury in case of an explosion of the burner.

  • Publication number: 20060273728
    Abstract: A high-pressure gas discharge (HID, high intensity discharge) lamp is described, having a discharge vessel (1) that contains a metal that is applied at least to parts of those regions of the feedthroughs and/or walls of the discharge vessel (1) at which condensation of ingredients of the gas filling may occur as a result of a temperature sink that occurs when the lamp is in a state of operation. In this way, it is possible to at least largely prevent not only chemical interactions between ingredients of the gas filling (particularly the metal halides) and the relevant regions of the feedthroughs or walls at which, due to the lower temperature of these regions, the ingredients condense, but also losses of ingredients of this kind from the gas filling. This in turn means that there is no risk of any damage to the lamp or of any degradation of its lumen maintenance.

  • Patent number: 6404122
    Abstract: A low-pressure mercury vapor discharge lamp is provided with a discharge vessel (10) enclosing a discharge space (11) containing a filling of mercury and a rare gas, an amalgam (63) which communicates with the discharge space (11), and means for maintaining an electric discharge in the discharge vessel (10). The amalgam (63) comprises a Bi:Sn content in the range of 80:20≦Bi:Sn≦20:80, a Pb content in the range of 0.7<Pb≦12 at % and a Hg content in the range of 0.05≦Hg≦2 at %. For compact fluorescent discharge lamps, the amalgam (63) preferably comprises 70:30≦Bi:Sn≦30:70, 1≦Pb≦10 at % and 0.25≦Hg≦1.2 at %. For electrodeless low-pressure mercury vapor discharge lamps, the amalgam preferably comprises 70:30≦Bi:Sn≦30:70, 1≦Pb≦10 at % and 0.05≦Hg≦0.5 at %.

  • Patent number: 5113119
    Abstract: An electrodeless high pressure discharge lamp contains a halide or oxyhalide of W, Ta, Re, or rhenium oxide in such a quantity that a supersaturated metal vapor arises in the discharge, by which metal particles are formed. Owing to their high temperature these particles generate thermal emission. The lamp has a high color temperature and a high color rendering index.
