UV Irradiation & Dosimetry
The Tyler Research UV-2 ultraviolet irradiation system is intended for quantitative ultraviolet dose-response analysis in biological organisms. The irradiator consists of a stainless steel primary chamber housing a contoured bank of high-flux UV-fluorescent lights, and a large front-loaded sample carrier (Figure 1). Lamps are cascade-phosphor ultraviolet generators with a sharp 310nm peak output (65% of total UV radiation falls within 20nm half bandwidth of the peak) and 365nm peak output generators. Each wavelength is individually selectable with an indicating rocker switch mounted on the top of the cabinet.
