Xenon

Xenon, Xe is a colourless, odourless, nonflammable, inert gas.

Applications
Pure xenon is used:

  • in incandescent lighting
  • in lasers
  • in cerebral blood flow measurements
  • in high energy particle physics research
  • in ion propulsion engine (electric engine) propellant
  • xenon makes it possible to obtain better x-rays with reduced amounts of radiation
  • when mixed with oxygen, is used to enhance contrast in CT imaging and to determine blood flow
  • in the manufacturing of high intensity light sources which operate in the ultraviolet range.
