Posted by on 18:53 in Blog | Comments Off on New Science Discussions

We’ve just added two new detailed discussions on the science of fluorescence. Firstly, we have added a very detailed description of what lumens are, and why a monochromatic blue light source can’t be measured in lumens.  This subject comes to us in a question nearly every day.  Enjoy.   Next we have added a treatise on the differences between blue light sources and UV light sources.   This is another topic we often get questions about.  Most people refer to fluo diving as UV diving but in fact, UV is a misnomer and is a poor...

You may have perhaps noticed a completely new and re-designed website.  That was a monumental task to undertake.  We are still experiencing a few bugs here and there and would appreciate your comments or any needed corrections you find by using our “Contacts” page. In the midst of all that, Lynn wrote an article for DAN’s ALERT Diver Magazine on the subject of...
