A method is demonstrated for measuring germicidal (254 nm) ultraviolet radiation (GUVR) in an omnidirectional manner. This method has application for those situations in which GUVR from more than one direction or source impinges on a three-dimensional object, and when it is of interest to determine the radiant fluence experienced by the object. For this purpose spherical quartz vessels were constructed varying from 0.8 to 1.25 cm in outside diameter. The vessels were filled with an actinometric… CONTINUE READING
