UV Phosphors – High Energy Photo-Initiators

Ultraviolet light phosphors used in conjunction with discharge lamps can open up entirely new fields of application for UV technology. Long-established chemical processes can be made much more effective, environmentally sustainable, and resource-efficient.

The substantial energy brought by exposure to UV light can initiate many photochemical reactions. Combined with discharge lamps, the phosphors made by Tailorlux can power these reactions to enable innovative application in industry and medical science.

UV-C Phosphors (190-280 nm)

UV-C light has many effects, including the breaking-down of carbon double bonds and the formation of ozone and hydrogen peroxide.

  • Safe water, surface, and air disinfection and purification
  • Photochemical processes

UV-B Phosphors (280-320 nm)

UV-B light is needed to form the essential Vitamin D3 in our skin and to activate special repair enzymes.

  • Treatment of skin conditions
  • Tanning lamps
  • Photochemical processes

UV-A Phosphors (320-400 nm)

The many photocatalytic processes initiated by UV-A exposure include the oxidation of melanin in our skin and the transformation of organic molecules.

  • Light sources for Cosmetic Applications
  • Photochemical synthesis of organic compounds
  • Air and water purification on photocatalytically active pigments like titanium dioxide
