UVB Sensor




The UVB Sensor is an ultraviolet light sensor that responds primarily to UVB radiation (approximately 290 to 320 nm). It is ideal for experiments using sunlight as your UV source and is the sensor recommended for the UV experiments in our lab books.


  • UV peak sensitivity: one volt per 204 mW/m2 at 300 nm
  • Wavelength sensitivity region, approximate: 290 to 320 nm, half-sensitivity points.
  • Dimensions: 21 cm by 2 cm diameter
  • Typical Resolution: 0.25 mW/m2
  • Time response: approximately 2 seconds to reach 95% of final reading
