Ultraviolet LED lamp on mosquito in Malaysia
Source: Date:2018-01-05

University of Malaysia (University of Malaya) principle and scientists use solar panels to mosquito light and human smells attract, making energy saving LED mosquito lamp. Not only against the local severe dengue fever, also let the success of public health and the use of renewable energy power generation combined. Wen scientist Chong Tong in order to fight against local dengue fever, developed LED lamp with mosquito catcher, which is powered by solar energy and wind power generation. Chong said the mosquito catching device is the use of mosquitoes like human odor characteristics to trap mosquitoes and fooled by ultraviolet attract, the system also integrated weak ultraviolet and suction fan. Ultraviolet light through the reaction of TiO2 photocatalyst and above traps generated after reaction, and then produce human exhaled carbon dioxide, when mosquitoes were successfully trapped, will be at the bottom of the net suction fan, it cannot escape. In addition, in order to avoid shading effect and make maximum energy acquisition, solar panel design in the system above the vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT) by the increase of omni directional type wind deflector (Omni-Directional Guide Vane; ODGV) coating, and circuit design in the light of above, suitable for use in areas prone to flooding. Guardian (TheGuardian) pointed out that there are 8 lights set with the urban area of Kuala Lumpur in the school campus, the research team and complete with 1 companies authorized to contract, the first commercial street is ready. According to WHO (WHO) pointed out that the outbreak of dengue fever in Malaysia in 2015 rose to 19%, reported up to 96 thousand cases, and the same year the number of fatal dengue fever has also increased, from 2014 1~11 month 162 people has increased to 282.
