"Ultraviolet" means "beyond violet" (from Latin ultra,

"beyond"), violet being the color of the highest frequencies of visible light.

Ultraviolet light has a higher frequency than violet light.

"Ultraviolet (UV) light is electromagnetic radiation with a wavelength shorter than

that of visible light, but longer than X-rays, in the range 10 nm to 400 nm,

and energies from 3eV to 124 eV. It is so named because the spectrum consists of

electromagnetic waves with frequencies higher than those that humans identify as the

color violet."

UVA, UVB and UVC are subtypes of UV light.

Ultraviolet A, long wave (black light) wavelength: 400 nm–315 nm energy of photons:

3.10–3.94 eV

Ultraviolet B or medium wave wavelength: 315 nm–280 nm energy of photons: 3.94–4.43 eV

Ultraviolet C, short wave (germicidal) wavelength: 280 nm–100 nm energy of photons:

4.43–12.4 eV




The electromagnetic spectrum of ultraviolet radiation (UVR), defined most broadly as

10–400 nano-meter, can be subdivided into a number of ranges recommended by the ISO

standard ISO-21348:[11]

Name Abbreviation Wavelength (nm) Photon energy (eV, aJ) Notes / alternative names

Ultraviolet A UVA 315–400 3.10–3.94, 0.497–0.631 Long wave, black light, not

absorbed by the ozone layer

Ultraviolet B UVB 280–315 3.94–4.43, 0.631–0.710 Medium wave, mostly absorbed by the

ozone layer

Ultraviolet C UVC 100–280 4.43–12.4, 0.710–1.987 Short wave, germicidal, completely

absorbed by the ozone layer and atmosphere

Near ultraviolet NUV 300–400 3.10–4.13, 0.497–0.662 Visible to birds, insects and


Middle ultraviolet MUV 200–300 4.13–6.20, 0.662–0.993

Far ultraviolet FUV 122–200 6.20–12.4, 0.993–1.987

Hydrogen Lyman-alpha H Lyman-a 121–122 10.16–10.25, 1.628–1.642 Spectral line at 121.6

nm, 10.20 eV. Ionizing radiation at shorter wavelengths

Vacuum ultraviolet VUV 10–200 6.20–12.4, 0.993–1.987 Strongly absorbed by

atmospheric oxygen, though 150–200 nm wavelengths can propagate through nitrogen

Extreme ultraviolet EUV 10–121 12.4–124, 1.99–19.87 Entirely ionizing radiation by

some definitions; completely absorbed by the atmosphere

What is Blacklight?

A black light, also referred to as a UV-A light, Wood's light, or simply ultraviolet

light, is a lamp that emits long wave (UV-A) ultraviolet light and not much visible


The lamp has a violet filter material, either on the bulb or in a separate glass filter

in the lamp housing, which blocks most visible light and allows through UV,[3] so the

lamp has a dim violet glow when operating.[5][6]

Black light bulbs which have this filter have a lighting industry designation that

includes the letters "BLB".[3][5]

A second type of bulb, which is also called a black light, produces ultraviolet but does

not have the filter material, so it produces more visible light and has a blue color when


These are made for use in "bug zapper" insect traps and are identified by the

industry designation "BL".[5][6]

Black light sources may be specially designed fluorescent lamps, mercury vapor lamps,

light-emitting diodes, lasers, or incandescent lamps.[5][6]

In medicine, forensics, and some other scientific fields, such a light source is referred

to as a Wood's lamp (named after Robert Williams Wood).

Although many other types of lamp emit ultraviolet light with visible light, black lights

are essential when UV-A light without visible light is needed,

particularly in observing fluorescence,[4][5] the colored glow that many substances emit

when exposed to UV. Black lights are employed for decorative and artistic lighting


diagnostic and therapeutic uses in medicine,[3] the detection of substances tagged with

fluorescent dyes, rock-hunting, the detection of counterfeit money, the curing of plastic


and attracting insects.[4] Strong sources of long-wave ultraviolet light are used in

tanning beds.[4]

Although the low power UV-A emitted by black lights is not a hazard to skin or eyes and

can be viewed without protection, powerful ultraviolet sources present dangers and

require personal protective equipment such as goggles and gloves.
