1. A disinfecting apparatus comprising:

  • a dual-single line lamp comprising;

    three triaxial tubes defining two annuli there between;

    a first gas mixture selected to produce a first narrow wavelength photon emission; and

    a second gas mixture different from the first gas mixture selected to produce a second narrow wavelength photon emission that is different from the first narrow wavelength photon emission;

    a high voltage electrode located on a first tubular surface of one of the three triaxial tubes;

    a ground electrode located on a second tubular surface of one of the three triaxial tubes, the second tubular surface located opposite the two annuli from the first tubular surface; and

    a photon reflector secured in a spaced relationship to the dual-single line lamp positioned to direct photons to a zone or surface, whereby the disinfecting apparatus produces photons that are directed to a selected zone or surface and efficiently destroys or deactivates DNA organic bonds and proteins of microorganisms when the high voltage electrode is energized.
