Ster-L-Ray Ultraviolet Germicidal Lamp
Ster-L-Ray Ultraviolet Germicidal Lamp Overview
Ster-L-Ray™ germicidal lamps are short wave low pressure mercury vapor tubes that produce ultraviolet wavelengths that are lethal to microorganisms. Germicidal lamps should not be confused with sunlamps or black-light lamps, for while these are also ultraviolet lamps, the ultraviolet produced is of longer wavelength and is not useful for germicidal applications. Approximately 95% of the ultraviolet energy emitted from Ster-L-Ray™ germicidal lamps is at the mercury resonance line of 254 nanometers. This wavelength is in the region of maximum germicidal effectiveness and is highly lethal to virus, bacteria and mold spores.

Wavelength
Nanometer (nm), millimicron (mµ)  and the Angstrom unit (A) are all units of length used to describe ultraviolet wavelengths. Nanometer and millimicron are synonymous and equal to a billionth of a meter. An Angstrom unit is one tenth as long; therefore 2540 A =254 = 254 nm.
