  1. Btw. I would rather filter the light the camera enters, i.e. selecting the wavelengths the sensors "sees", instead of filtering the light source (also cheaper, as the needed filters are usually smaller). This is, if reflected UV recording needs to be achieved. I have done so down to about 300n with wide-bqand and very narrowband UV transmitting filters. make sure they are completely blocked for VIS and IR, otherwise leakage will be recorded and not UV!! See the following link and itw continuations on my BLOG) http://photographyoftheinvisibleworld.blogspot.de/2012/08/leakage-in-reflected-uv-ultraviolet.html If "UV induced visible fluorescence" (UVIF for short) is intended, then teh UV lightsource will be filtered suitably (expensive, since usually large filters are needed) and the camera needs a very good UV/IR Cut filter, I use the Baader UV/IR Cut filter for that (420-700nm) as it has great out of band blockage.
  2. Hi Taylor, yes, you have my permission to link to my sites here! Such old lamps can be quite dangerous esp. as they emit toms og UV-B and UV-C so good eye protection is mandatory (better also protect skin too!) Best wishes!
