How to kill a mosquito

How to kill a mosquito at 30 feet

Interesting question… Are we talking vaporize, ignite, or heat up until death for the mosquito? I’ll assume we want to minimize damage to surroundings so let’s just heat them up till they stop functioning. We’d need to figure out the temperature at which a majority of mosquitos will die. Since they seem to love hot weather, let’s assume we need to hit 100°C for them to fry. Estimating the average absorption coefficient for a mosquito when illuminated with the spectrum of your favorite LED source (50% of incident radiative power…

AR-GL (A10) *New Product*

New Product

We have created a great new product, it has been designed for harsh locations, extreme water resistance and comes with corrosion protection. Key Features: Thermally managed for maximum longevity; Multiple mounting options; Emits light in the photosynthetic photon ux (PPF) range of plants (400 to 700 nm); ‘Sunlight’ model’s spectrum can be tuned based on the crop and life cyle of the plants; Special powder coating for extreme resistance to chemical attack and aggressive cleaning agents and bio-cides used in food processing industries; Low surface-energy coating and smooth surface texture…

Photometric Test Results

Photometric Test Results

We are currently developing a grow light. This fixture is designed to be better at growing and brighter than conventional solutions. The lux to PPFD or lumen to PPF conversion for the fixture is much higher than HPS fixture. We have taken our “Food Safe” fixture design and integrated plant lighting. The fixture is sealed, watertight and perfect for large scale growing.

Photobiology in Agriculture

Photobiology is the study of light and its effect on living things. There has been a great deal of study on photobiology in the area of agriculture. The interest continues to grow because the science is becoming more refined and the marketplace is developing. Some random notes and an initial Nemalux fixture spectra is shown below. McCree Curve: K. J. McCree (1970) studied and developed the action spectrum, absorption and quantum yield curves of photosynthesis in crop plants. The action spectrum is commonly known as the McCree Curve. McCree curve…

Photobiology: Safety and Productivity

Photobiology is the study of light and its effect on living things. There has been a great deal of study on photobiology in the area of agriculture. However, its application in the oil & gas environment is a new field. It is a niche market for those companies like CRS Electronics that have the expertise to engineer lighting systems that enhance operations and safety in the energy sector. An oil & gas operation runs on a 24 hour rotation. It is a rhythm that is dictated by the market demand…

Vision Restoration

Vision Restoration

Eyes are the doorway to the most crucial of senses. Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) and Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) are progressive blinding diseases caused by the death of retinal rods and cones in the eyes. The visual system remains relatively intact but is unable to respond to light. The University of Pennsylvania conducts research into the diagnosis and treatment of RP and AMD. The purpose of this research is to develop improved methods of diagnosis and effective treatments for these diseases. In today’s research there are several approaches for rendering the…
