What is UV imaging?
UV imaging is the capturing of an image within the narrow light spectrum of UV, usually between 300 – 400nm.
What is UV imaging used for?
It is useful to capture the reflective pattern of the subjects of interest, e.g. flowers or forensic evidence.
What do you require for UV imaging?
i) A camera sensor which is sensitive to UV (preferably full-spectrum modified camera),
ii) A lens which allows sufficient UV to pass through to the sensor,
iii) A UV-pass filter which blocks off visible and infra-red light sufficiently,
iv) A UV-light source,
v) A suitable subject (of course).
I will try and add to this subject as I go along.
