Paper Abstract

A fiber optic ultraviolet (UV) sterilizing system, which has the ability to irradiate 10 to 100 times higher germicidal UV light than ordinary germicidal lamps, has been developed. The system consists of two functional parts: one is a light source which emits germicidal UV light, the other is flexible quartz fibers which transmit light with low attenuation. Optical characteristics and biological effects of the system are described.
