My project deals with light sanitation. A new technology called High Intensity Narrow Spectrum (HINS) uses a very narrow spectrum of visible light centered on the 405 nm wavelength can destroy bacteria and superbugs, while also being completely harmless for humans without the necessity of any special protection. Naturally a violet hue, HINS-light has been combined with LED lights to create a warm white light. Developed by a research team at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, Scotland, HINS-light­ can be used in places where bacteria, including airborne, are prone to spreading and in environments where absolute sanitation is necessary. It can also be used in places that are often dirty and difficult to stop germs from spreading, including public and private spaces.

I want to implement this technology because there are many places where constant sanitation is necessary to prevent the spread of bacteria and disease, but not always possible. Since this can be used the same way you use regular indoor lighting, it can be implemented very easily to provide light and sanitation simultaneously at the flip of a switch.
