Xenon (Xe) is a colorless, odorless noble gas.
Gas density is lighter than air.
Asphyxiant in high concentrations.
1) The major application for xenon is in the lighting industry. Both sodium and mercury lamps, which are used
extensively for outdoor lighting, such as on motorways and other roads, are filled with pure xenon.
2) Xenon is also used for:
→ iodine lamps (car headlights)
→ arc lights
→ flash bulbs
→ cinema projection lamps
→ Klieg lights for filming (sunlight simulation)
→ illumination of large areas, e.g. sports grounds
→ space simulations lamps
3)Xenon is also used for mass spectrometer calibration.
4) Xenon can be used as purging gas in the etching production steps in chip production instead of argon. Due to the high cost, a xenon recovery system is necessary.
