Formula: Xe

Xenon is a colorless, odorless, nonflammable, inert gas.

Applications

  • The major use is in the lighting industry. Both sodium and mercury lamps, which are used extensively for outdoor and roadway lighting are filled with pure xenon.
  • Used for incandescent lamps, iodine lamps (car headlights), arc lights, flash bulbs, cinema projection lamps, Klieg lights for filming (sunlight simulation), and space simulation lamps.
  • When mixed with oxygen, xenon is used in CAT (Computer Aided Tomography) scanners for blood flow mapping.
  • When mixed with methane, xenon is used as a fill gas for proportional counters and other types of radiation detectors.
  • Xenon-based chemical compounds can serve as fluorinating and oxidizing agents.
  • Used for mass spectrometer calibration.
  • Used in some types of ion and excimer lasers.
