Abstract : An argon gas forced transpiration arc (FTA) source used to produce a high intensity 180 nm to above 2.5 micron continuous spectrum was described. Calibration technics, monitoring instrumentation and procedures for studying the effects of ultraviolet on the eye were presented. An ultraviolet space energy profile was composed using data from rocket flights. (Author)
