Ultraviolet or short wavelength lights have been utilized industrially in various fields. There are numerous areas of activity that employ UV radiation in which the intensity and distribution of the UV light are important parameters. These include industrial monitoring of materials and processes, spectrofluorescent studies of materials, photoresist illumination, solar simulation, semiconductor annealing, computer PROM erasing, and germicidal sterilization. Effects of UV in sunlight on human bodies have brought about a significant problem and the requirement for the technique of accurately measuring the UV-intensity and dose has increased more. Exposure to ultraviolet radiation can cause a wide range of deleterious effects in human skin, including dehydration, burning, premature aging, and discoloration. Generally, UV detectors consist of a filter or combination of filters to pass only the UV radiation of interest followed by means to convert such radiation into electrical signals. A UV detector generally include a semiconductor having sensitivity to short wavelength such as GaP with a long wavelength cut-off/short wavelength transmitting filter.
