New Technology: Ultraviolet Radiation System(s)

Explanation: The Ultraviolet Radiation System, invented by George Jay Lichtblau, is a system that uses little to no radiation output when powered on. As it is powered on, it kills pathogens that have been messed with during UV-C output radiation of itself. Also, it decontaminates the air that has passes by/through the device. (Motion Detection).

Materials Used: It is supported by a dolly with four wheels. It is a tall, skinny object that has air vent openings and a pair of UV-C lamps on each of the four sides. Then,a fan is put on top, so when turned on, it starts air flow through the system to keep the UV-C lamps at regular temperature. Controlled by a remote control using radio/infrared signals as well.

Impact: It is getting rid of the most harmful UV type of all, UV-C, which could effect the world as we know it today. Also, it cleans air to make it fresher, cleaner, and easier to breath in.

Date/Person Who Introduced it: Filing Date: Oct.8,2013 and Publication Date: July 29th, 2014. The person who introduced it to the world was George Jay Lichtblau.
