Abstract:

The spectral energy distribution of the Xenon arc lamp in the Xenotest 150 Weather Fastness Tester has been measured. Ageing of the lamp results in a reduction in the intensity of the radiation and a change in the spectral energy distribution. A modified form of the uranyl oxalate actinometer is suggested as a means of following the changes in the intensity of the ultra-violet radiation emitted by the lamp. Author
