Selective reflection from mercury and cadmium vapors in the neighborhood of the resonance lines was investigated quantitatively using incident light of continuous spectral distribution. Electrical tuning of selective reflection of light is achieved in a very broad spectral range from ultraviolet to visible and infrared by an oblique helicoidal state of a cholesteric liquid crystal in a wide temperature range (including room temperature).

Ultraviolet Light and Its Uses is a short introduction and guide to ultraviolet light (UV) and its many and varied practical uses. It covers the elemental basics of ultraviolet and other forms of electromagnetic radiation, shows a plethora of practical and interesting uses of ultraviolet light that the reader can do, and gives a survey of its uses in more advanced areas including.

A photolytic converter of nitrogen dioxide (NO2) to nitric oxide (NO) using light-emitting diodes (LEDs) has been designed to measure NO2 in the troposphere.

The typical electrical power consumption of the photolytic converter (PLC) is only 44 W. The maximum conversion efficiency of NO2 to NO of the photolytic converter is around 90%, which is higher Cited by: The white light emitted by a fluorescent lamp is provided by the A) filtering Selective reflection of ultraviolet light from mercury vapour.

Evergreen Pet Supplies Watt UVA UVB Mercury Vapor Bulb/Light/Lamp for Reptile and Amphibian Use - Excellent Source of Heat and Light for UV and Basking out of 5/5(2). A projection system that includes a projector that projects light in wavelength bands, including a non-laser light source and a screen that includes at least two metal layers separated by a layer of dielectric material.

The screen is constructed and arranged to reflect light in the wavelength bands projected by the projector and to not reflect light not in the wavelength bands. We report the first observation of selective reflection of light from an interface of a dielectric window and molecular vapor of Rb2 dimers formed in all-sapphire sealed-off rubidium vapor cell.

Ultraviolet light sources A third class of applications is the imaging of UV sources. In many applications where UV light is used, it is not necessary to directly image the UV light source. For example, in Figure 7, the lens in the lens holder is transmitting an ultraviolet laser beam, a frequency-tripled YAG laser operating at nm.

The novel system of ultraviolet light-emitting diodes (UV LEDs) was studied in water disinfection. Conventional UV lamps, like mercury vapor lamp, consume much energy and are considered to be.

Green light emitted by excited mercury vapor corresponds to an energy transition in the mercury atom. Stars twinkle when seen from Earth. At night an underwater scuba diver aims a flashlight beam toward the surface at 15 degrees to the normal.

Some minerals glow when illuminated with ultraviolet light because-ultraviolet photons have high energy.-of selective transmission.-ultraviolet photons boost atomic electrons in the mineral to higher energy states.-of selective reflection.-none of the above.

The reality is a bit more complicated. Most fluorescent lamps work on the following principle. Inside the lamp, electrical discharge excites a gas (usually neon or mercury vapor in argon), which emits ultraviolet radiation.

UV rays hit a special dye covering the bulb, which absorbs UV radiation and emits visible light. Medium-pressure lamps draw a much greater current than low-pressure lamps, leading to a rapid rise in the mercury vapor pressure.

This gives a typical diffuse medium-pressure UV spectrum (see Figure 3).Per unit area, the effective germicidal output of a medium-pressure lamp is much greater (up to 30 times) than a low-pressure lamp, allowing high flow rates to be treated using. But what surprised me was the level of UV that was reflected.

I think we all realise that UV reflects off water, especially those who enjoy a bit of fishing or time out on the boat.

Apparently it is between 3% – 8% of UV reflects off water, which isn’t huge, but without sun protection on a high UV day, that is still enough to do a bit of. UV Radiation as an Attractor for Insects Alessandro Barghini PhD1* and Bruno Augusto Souza de Medeiros2 Abstract—Light pollution due to exterior lighting is a rising concern.

While glare, light trespass and general light pollution have been well described, there are few reported studies on the impact of light pollution on insects.

The UV lamps for water treatment consist of specialized low-pressure mercury-vapor lamps that produce ultraviolet radiation at nm, or medium-pressure UV lamps that produce a polychromatic output from nm to visible and infrared energy.

The UV lamp never contacts the water; it is either housed in a quartz glass sleeve inside the water chamber or mounted. : Mercury Vapor Lamps - 3 Stars & Up.

The arc discharge is generally confined to a small fused quartz arc tube mounted within a larger borosilicate glass bulb. Mercury vapor lamps are more energy efficient than incandescent and most fluorescent lights.

Their other. A low-pressure mercury vapor discharge tube floods the inside of a hood with shortwave UV light when not in use, sterilizing microbiological contaminants from irradiated surfaces.

Ultraviolet lamps are used to sterilize workspaces and tools used in. UV is also extensively used in manufacturing processes such as bottled water, beer, carbonated soft drinks and ultrapure water.

Disinfection by UV radiation involves damaging the genetic material of organisms by energy in the form of light of wavelength nm emitted from a low-pressure mercury vapour lamp [12]. This particular wavelength. The original full-spectrum, self-ballasted, mercury vapor bulb, is the longest lasting, most effective UVB/heat lamp available today.

First, what reflects the light, whether it is UV, visible or IR wavelength, is the metal coating on the mirror. The reflectivity of various metals is indicated here: Page on Aluminum is a good reflector of UV, visible and IR ligh.

Breeding Birds’ feathers reflect UV light and this reflection of the plumage plays a role in the sexual selection of birds. As birds are able to distinguish UV light as a separate colour or colours, the UV component in daylight can radically alter their visual perception of another bird.

Moreover,animals living in the arctic circle( wolf,arctic fox,polar bears)have white e of the fact that it's always night for half of the year,snow reflects 80% of the UV contrast,a bituminous surface reflects % in a normal sunny ,following the chemistry of melanin,polar bears should have a black fur instead of white?What more.

7. A mercury vapor lamp as in claim 1 wherein the alumina underlayer has a thickness providing selective ultraviolet reflection without reducing visible transmission. A mercury vapor lamp as in claim 1 wherein the weight of the phosphor coating has been reduced without accompanying reduction in lamp lumen output.

Thus, UV light emitting diodes (UV-LEDs) have been recently considered as a potential novel UV source offering features that could overcome the shortcomings of these lamps, including high durability, robust designs, lower voltage requirements, and lack of mercury (Chevremont et al., ; Würtele et al., ).

However, studies applying UV Cited by: 2. In a fluorescent light, when you switch it on electrons excite, which collide with mercury vapor and creates Ultraviolet light. In a fluorescent light, when the UV light collides with the phosphorous coating it creates.

A germicidal lamp is a special type of lamp which produces ultraviolet (UVC) light. This short-wave ultraviolet light disrupts DNA base pairing causing formation of pyrimidine dimers and leads to the inactivation of bacteria, viruses, and protozoa.

It can also be used to produce ozone for water disinfection. UV is still on will block UV radiation from contacting the surface by shading. If a sliding sash is present, it should be closed while the UV light is in operation. Regular cleanliness is necessary to ensure the effectiveness of the lamp.

In birds UV light influences behaviour such as reproduction and feeding – for a bird life without UV would be the equivalent of humans seeing everything in black and white.
