How do I create a liquid that generates constant UV light ?

  1. Aug 10, 2015 #1
    HI Guys .. I really need some help on this ... I need to manufacture(mix) a liquid that 'displays' as UV light if that's the correct term.
    any ideas where I could start ? I have limited chemicals knowledge :/

    basically I want something that is stable, non toxic and can be seen by birds as UV light if that makes it more understandable lol

    Welcome to the PF.

    What are you going to use to power this liquid light? Can you just shine UV light into the liquid? What is the application? Can birds see UV light?

    I assume you want something capable of reflecting UV light? I don't know of any liquid capable of "generating" any kind of light besides thermal infrared radiation. You would need to input energy, or be burning something.

    What expanse of surface area are you aiming to have? All flat, or in rippley motion?
