Why Pulsed is Better than Continuous
Pulsed Light produces peak power more than 100,000 times greater than the sun’s intensity on the Earth’s surface. Why is this better than continuous UV light? Consider two ways of expending the equivalent of 100 Joules of energy: one can either power a 10 watt continuous lamp for 10 seconds or power a 1,000,000 watt pulsed lamp for 100 microseconds. This is analogous to penetrating a block of wood with a nail: one could press a nail into the wood with a finger for 10 seconds without effect, or exert the same amount of energy and drive the nail instantaneously into the wood with a single strike of a hammer. Pulsed UV, like the hammer, delivers light at high peak power for deep penetration.
