UV Radiation Measurements
Ultraviolet radiation (UV) is widely used in many industrial processes, primarily for curing, purification, sterilization and lithography. The accurate UV measurement of such high-energy UV radiation sources requires particular demands on the design and calibration of suitable instrumentation or called UV Meters. Gigahertz Optik GmbH offers a comprehensive product range of temperature stable and robust instruments and measurement accessories for measuring high energy ultraviolet radiation, a selection of which are presented in the application examples on this page.
Additionally, particular UV measurement solutions are also presented in the following application categories:
Standards about Germicidal UV Radiation
Most standards relate to the potential hazard of UVC sources (photobiological safety) rather than to the germicidal effectiveness (germicidal efficacy) of UVC light sources. In general, they are based on ICNIRP guidelines on the limits of exposure to ultraviolet radiation, published in HEALTH PHYSICS 87(2):171-186; 2004.
