Bob Karlicek, the director of the Center for Lighting Enabled Systems & Applications (LESA) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, will discuss ultraviolet (UV-C) technology and how it may be used to kill viruses and other pathogens during a webcast, hosted by LEDs Magazine.
This topic has come into focus as one possible solution for preventing and mitigating the COVID-19 pandemic.
Karlicek recently led a team of researchers that built a machine that uses UV-C light to sterilize thousands of protective masks each day, rendering them safe for reuse.
The webcast will be held on June 18 at 1 p.m. EDT. More information can be found here.
