Ultraviolet - Resource Needed

  1. Jan 6, 2009 #1
    I am a new product development engineer and am working on figuring out a UV sanitization product.

    Do you know of a good resource to understand UV rays, its properties, using UV, etc.?

    I am not looking for detailed math models and analysis, but rather, a resource that will help me understand enough to spec out the kind of UV bulb needed, the intensity needed and to be able to understand/ predict its efficacy.

    Thank you in advance.

    Our tissue culture hoods all have UV germicidal bulbs in them- have a look at what the bulb supplier says (GE, most likely)
