Increasing visible-light absorption for photocatalysis with black BiOCl.
Summary of "Increasing visible-light absorption for photocatalysis with black BiOCl."
Black BiOCl with oxygen vacancies was prepared by UV light irradiation with Ar blowing. The as-prepared black BiOCl sample showed 20 times higher visible light photocatalytic activity than white BiOCl for RhB degradation. The trapping experiment showed that the superoxide radical () and holes (h(+)) were the main active species in aqueous solution under visible light irradiation.

Techniques using energy such as radio frequency, infrared light, laser light, visible light, or acoustic energy to transfer information without the use of wires, over both short and long distances.
A photoprotein isolated from the bioluminescent jellyfish Aequorea. It emits visible light by an intramolecular reaction when a trace amount of calcium ion is added. The light-emitting moiety in the bioluminescence reaction is believed to be 2-amino-3-benzyl-5-(p-hydroxyphenyl)pyrazine (AF-350).
Analytical technique for studying substances present at enzyme concentrations in single cells, in situ, by measuring light absorption. Light from a tungsten strip lamp or xenon arc dispersed by a grating monochromator illuminates the optical system of a microscope. The absorbance of light is measured (in nanometers) by comparing the difference between the image of the sample and a reference image.
Microscopy using polarized light in which phenomena due to the preferential orientation of optical properties with respect to the vibration plane of the polarized light are made visible and correlated parameters are made measurable.
That portion of the electromagnetic spectrum in the visible, ultraviolet, and infrared range.
We prepared BiOCl(1-x) Br(x) (x=0-1) solid solutions and characterized their structures, morphologies, and photocatalytic properties by X-ray diffraction, diffuse reflectance spectroscopy, scanning el...
The band gap reduction and effective utilization of visible solar light are possible by introducing the anionic hole-hole mediated coupling in Sr(2)Nb(2)O(7). By using the first principles calculation...
How to extend ultraviolet photocatalysts to the visible-light region is a key challenge for solar-driven photocatalysis. Herein, we show that ultraviolet ZnO photocatalysts can present high visible-li...

The "blue light hazard" has been reported to cause retinal damage (oxidative stress), particularly to the central fovea due to its energetic, shorter wavelength visible photons, which is w...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the potential of Tazarotene Foam to induce a phototoxic reaction when exposed to UV and VIS light on skin of healthy volunteers.
This study will determine which color of light is most effective in stimulating a range of biological functions in humans including activation of sleep-wake regulatory system (alertness, p...
Visible-light-filtering IOLs are implanted increasingly often in cataract surgery. Several studies examined the effect of light-filters on contrast and colour vision. However, the study ou...
