(UV)
(electromagnetic radiation, wavelength 10-400 nm)

Ultraviolet (UV) is Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) with Wavelength in the range of 10 nm to 400 nm, situated between Visible Light and X-ray radiation. Terms for subranges:

  • Near Ultraviolet (NUV, Near-UV) 300-400nm
  • Middle Ultraviolet (MUV) 200-300nm
  • Far Ultraviolet (FUV) 100-200nm
  • Extreme Ultraviolet (EUV) 10-100nm

Another set of terms:

  • UVA 315-400nm
  • UVB 280-315nm
  • UVC 100-280nm
