Xenon - 54Xe: uses
The following uses for xenon are gathered from a number of sources as well as from anecdotal comments. I would be delighted to receive corrections as well as additional referenced uses.
- used in making electron tubes, stroboscopic lamps, bactericidal lamps, and lamps used to excite ruby lasers for generating coherent light
- used in the atomic energy field in bubble chambers, probes, and other applications where its high molecular weight is of value
- potentially useful as a gas for ion engines
- the perxenates are used in analytical chemistry as oxidizing agents
