Comparison of wearable UV sensors
We present our peer-reviewed findings on comparing low-cost wearable UV sensors
Individual sensitivity to UV exposure
UV sensitivity is driven by a complex mix of genetics, UV exposure history, and medication
Should you trust the UV index forecast?
The UV index is estimated from the EPA. It is an estimation of how strong the UV is at the zipcode level.
UV Radiation Through Windows: An experiment
How much UV radiation seeps through the windows we spend so much time behind?
UV exposure over time: how its impact is calculated
The accumulation, over time, of UV exposure is called the UV dose.
UV sensors must match the skin sensitivity
Skin sensitivity was discovered by Diffey and later adopted by the World Health Organization.
