Ultraviolet A / UVA

Ultraviolet A, also known as UVA or Blacklight is used often in the Entertainment World.  The neat thing about UVA is that people cannot perceive UV directly since the lens of the eye blocks most radiation in the wavelength range of 300–400 nm, typical and professional UV fixture operate between 360-750 nm, which is why your eyes can’t actually see the light output from the fixture.

What you see glowing under a blacklight, whether on a neon poster, an invisible hand stamp or a newly washed white T-shirt, are phosphors.  A phosphor is any substance that emits visible light in response to some sort of radiation. A phosphor converts the energy in the UV radiation from a blacklight into visible light that you see glowing.

Here are a recent event, that utilized 6 UV Fixture to achieve an even glow amongst students at LHS.  The students also applied neon tape in abstract shape for added texture and unique looks.
