Can't find published sources[edit]

I have searched and searched for published references to use as inline citations but have been unable to find anything. Will keep trying. 10.24.2013 by AGB: professional uv photographer.

I'm fixing the links for long, medium, and short wave.[edit]

This article is linking to the radio waves. The terms are inappropritae for this UV article. -Arch dude 22:35, 9 December 2006 (UTC)


This article calls for pictures but all I find in Commons is black light pictures and ultraviolet astronomy that I understand are not the subject of this article. -- 08:52, 3 July 2007 (UTC)

Fluorite, not Fluoride![edit]

The mineral the UV-Lenses are made of is chemically calcium fluoride,

as a mineral called fluorite by geologists. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:18, 26 August 2010 (UTC)


Please expand and elaborate on the uses - how exactly is it used in astronomy, medicine, criminology, dermatology, theatre, etc... Also, does it have a practical use for professional photographers (outside of modern art exhibitions whose sole goal is to show stuff in fancy colours) - e.g. the portrait of the man that is in the article - how does that differ from a visible light photo and why might a photographer decide to make UV photos?
