Title: CHARACTERIZATION OF FLUORESCENT PHOSPHORS FOR LOW-COST SOLAR ULTRAVIOLET IRRADIANCE MEASURING INSTRUMENTATION
Agency: NSF
Contract: N/A
Award Amount: $49,449.00
 

Abstract:

RECENT CONCERN OVER THE DEPLETION OF THE OZONE LAYER HAS HIGHLIGHTED THE NEED FOR IMPROVED INSTRUMENTATION FOR MEASURING SOLAR, ULTRAVIOLET LIGHT. RESEARCHERS ARE STUDYING THE DEVELOPMENT OF LOW-COST DETECTORS WITH SPECTRAL SENSITIVITIES IN THE UV REGIONS OF CURRENT SCIENTIFIC INTEREST. THE DETECTORS ARE BASED ON FLUORESCENT PHOSPHOR TECHNOLOGY. THE APPROPRIATE INORGANIC FLUORESCING PHOSPHORS ARE SELECTED AND THEIR EFFICIENCY AND SPECTRAL RESPONSES FULLY CHARACTERIZED AS A FUNCTION OF TEMPERATURE, GRAIN SIZE, AND LAYER THICKNESS.
