DRDO's UV-C Sanitisation Box for Sanitising Mobile, Laptops, Currency and Personal Belongings.

     During this time of the epidemic, it is very important to disinfect your personal belongings to protect yourself from infection.  You must clean your exterior properly when coming from the outside or from a public place. We can clean our hands using a sanitizer in the old fashioned way but the big question is how to disinfect your personal belongings.


UV-C based sanitization box
 
You cannot clean your personal belongings with an alcohol-based chemical sanitizer, as it may harm your devices and personal belongings.

                As a solution to this problem, DRDO has created a UV based sanitization box Defence Institute of Physiology & Allied Sciences (DIPAS) and Institute of Nuclear Medicine & Allied Sciences (INMAS), DRDO laboratories in Delhi has contributed to making this device. This device works on UV-C technology., Having 254 nanometers wavelength with short and more powerful UV light. UV-C technology consists of a shorter and more energetic wavelength of UV light. Shorter and more energetic wavelength helps to destroy genetic materials in COVID-19.

                  UV-C radiations affects the structure RNA which resists viral particles to make more copies of themselves. This method of sanitization is also environmentally friendly. DRDO claimed that we can sanitize our personal belongings like mobile phones, tablets, purse, currency, a cover of the office files effectively. UV-C lamps with a capacity of 100 MJ/cm^2is placed equidistantly in this box can help to deactivate the COVID-19 virus in 1 minute.


                     

This box also uses 185 nm wavelength UV-C radiations which is helpful to take care of unexposed areas of the objects placed inside. The handheld UV-C device with 6 watt UV lamp files, postal deliveries and food pockets with 45 seconds of exposure at a 100 mj /cm^2.

        This device can help us to reduce transmission of coronavirus in office and public places. The sanitization of personal belongings with this method controls the transmission of viruses from one individual to another. Epidemic viruses are dangerous as they can spread in large amounts with a short period. The chances of transmission are more in public places. We often touch our personal belongings like mobile phones, laptops, tablets, purse, and currency notes, which leads to the transmission of viruses. Defense Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) provided us with such a great solution to this problem.

Contribution of Engineers to Fight Against COVID-19.

Now the day's world is facing an outbreak of a pandemic. The whole world is affected by the consequences caused by COVID-19. It badly affects public health and the economy of the nation, to survive in this critical situation we must have to stand together and fight against this deadly virus. To get out of this situation we have to follow some safety measures and for that public awareness is a must. As we are lucky enough that various sectors showing their active participation and giving helping hands to help us. The technical sector is one of the examples of a group of peoples who started doing various social welfare activities in terms of technology.

Various departments from IIT Guwahati started researching in their respective fields and areas. Out of which Mechanical, Electrical, Bioscience and Bioengineering plays an important role in developing scientific equipment for diagnosis and safety. It is also in the pr…

The Nanotechnology

Introduction:        The word nano is derived from Latin word nanus means dwarf and GreekNanos which is referred to as a very small or smallest. The term Nanotechnology is a combination of word nano and technology. Nano means the smallest and Technology means method, systems, and devices which are the result of scientific knowledge being used for practical purposes. Nanotechnology or nanoscience involves the ability to see and to control individual atoms and molecules something as small an atom is impossible to see with the naked eyes. The microscope for its study is invented about 30 years ago.
One nanometer is one-billionth of a meter  1 nm = 10^-9 of a meter.
There are 25,400,000 in an inch 1 inch = 25 million and  400 thousand nm
 A sheet of newspaper is about 100,000 nanometer.
          On a comparative scale, if a marble were a nanometer, then one meter would be the size of the earth. Nanotechnology is widely used in technical research and inventions. This field of science can be …

AI Based X-Ray For Diagnosis of COVID-19

The world is facing the global crisis of pandemic. In this situation health care facilities facing problems like staff shortages and overwhelming patient loads. Intense increment in loads of patients tends to work on for compensation of lack, this leads to finding the methods which help the Fastrack diagnosis process.  Researchers from various fields working on developing the methods and devices which help to Fastrack and accurate the diagnosis process.             Approval of the research depends on the accuracy of results and ease of use. Conventional diagnosis methods like Polymerising chain reaction (PCR) are having better results accuracy but the time required for the diagnosis of sample is more. So far in an emergency situation it is often difficult to check more samples in less time. Researchers got a solution to this problem in terms of new technology.             AI (artificial intelligence) is a booming area of research in various fields. The pandemic becomes the gateway for t…
