Krypton Trivia:
  • Sir William Ramsay was awarded the 1904 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for the discovery of the noble gasses, including Krypton.
  • The meter was defined in 1960 as 1,650,763.73 wavelengths of the 605.78 nanometer spectral line from Krypton-86. This standard was replaced in 1983.
  • Krypton is usually inert, but it can form molecules. The first krypton molecule, krypton difluoride (KrF2), was discovered in 1963.
  • Earth's atmosphere has approximately 1 part per million abundance of krypton.
  • Krypton can be obtained by fractional distillation from air.
  • Light bulbs containing krypton gas can produce a bright white light useful for photography and runway lights.
  • Krypton is often used in gas and gas ion lasers.
