Eppley Total Ultraviolet Radiometer (TUVR)
The Eppley Total Ultraviolet Radiometer (TUVR) is a detector for the measurement of solar UVA radiation (0.295 to 0.385 µm). The instrument utilizes a hermetically sealed selenium barrier-layer cell that is protected by a quartz window. A specially designed teflon provides for a good cosine response. An encapsulated narrow band pass (interference) filter limits the spectral response of the photocell to the wavelength interval 0.295 to 0.385 µm.
