365nm Blacklight for Ascertaining the Age Period of American Brilliant Cut Glass
I am looking for a 365nm black light to be used in ascertaining the age period of American Brilliant Cut Glass.
This was produced in America circa 1870-1920. The preponderance of American-made lead crystal included manganese, in contrast to European-made glass. Manganese will fluoresce under 365nm black light.
The light source should not produce other wavelengths that would interfere with observing fluorescence.
If the sample fluoresces, it will be a strong indicator that the glass is genuine from the period. Do you have any items to suggest? I am thinking the 365nm flood might be good.
Based on the details provided, it appears that the 365nm realUV™ LED Flood Light could be a great fit for your installation purposes. We have attached a link to the product's photometric report and UV irradiance patterns below, in the hopes that they prove to be helpful.
