An international project with Russian, Spanish, German and Ukrainian participation, Spektr-UF will study the universe in the ultraviolet spectrum, which is not possible with ground-based instruments.
Guney's model showed how metamaterials might be "stretched" to refract light waves from the infrared all the way past visible light and into the ultraviolet spectrum.
OPTEK Technology, a division of TT electronics, is a leading manufacturing and solutions provider for sensing and illumination covering the infrared, visible and ultraviolet spectrum; with standard as well as application specific products for a variety of markets, including, but not limited to: office machines, industrial equipment, encoders, automotive electronics, military and high-reliability applications, medical diagnostic equipment and solid-state lighting.
First, a little overview of ultraviolet light and liquid sanitation: A portion of the ultraviolet spectrum, known as UVC light, gets microbes where they live: Exposure doesn't kill them, but it does pummel their DNA to the point that they cannot reproduce.
Ultraviolet Spectrum technology is a new measure technique, since there are different components in different matter systems and the unsaturation degree of the components are not same, the UV abs curves of the matter system are different.
These devices rely on UVC energy, the most germicidal wavelength in the ultraviolet spectrum. Installed in an air-handling system, high-output UVC lights emit enough energy to penetrate even the tiniest microbe to destroy its DNA and RNA, killing or deactivating it.
Iping says that the companion's ultraviolet spectrum resembles that of a Wolf-Rayet star--the searing core of a super-massive star that has blown off most of its outer envelope in powerful winds.

Today, leading manufacturers are pushing deeper into the ultraviolet spectrum. However, the end is in sight for further incremental changes.
Red algae in natural sunlight have 75 percent as much photosynthetic capacity as do those protected from the portion of the sun's ultraviolet spectrum known as UV-B.
However, the ultraviolet spectrum exhibited a [[lambda].sub.max] of 652 nm compared with the 5HIAA [[lambda].sub.max] of 632 nm, a red shift of 20 nm, which could easily be missed by the casual observer.
