Ultraviolet Lamp (tanning lamp)|
Xenon has very little applications due to its high cost and limited abundance. It is used in photography flashes and in the proportional counters filling gas mixtures for radiation detection, due to its high cross-section of ionization by X-rays or gamma rays. Historically it is important to refer the old use of xenon in certain bubble-chambers. The xenon compounds have very limited applications; however, some of them can be used in analytic chemistry as oxidizing agents and fluorizing agents for specific purposes.
