Xenon Applications

This heavy and rare inert gas is today in demand in many industrial branches, sometimes in much unexpected ones.

This gas is most widely and most famously used in light-emitting devices in high-pressure (several atms) lamps. They produce extremely intense, white light of full- range spectrum, from infrared to ultraviolet. They are used in fields where orthochromatic reproduction is important: in photography, cinematography, in stage and studios lighting, in fabric and paint industry.

In medicine it is used for X-ray diagnostics, because of its property to absorb X-rays and its complete harmlessness.

Xenon difluoride is used for chemical synthesis.\n
