Researchers at the Stevens Institute of Technology in New Jersey are developing a device that destroys anthrax and other deadly bacteria. The device emits ultraviolet rays that oxidize bacteria. "It works the way hydrogen peroxide kills bacteria in a wound," says George Kofiatis, head of the Institute's Center for Environmental En-gineering. He indicates that the device attracted the attention of the U.S. Department of Justice and the Postal Service.
