Abstract

New technologies leading to better and more efficient light emitting diodes. The emitted radiation reaches higher energy levels and lower wavelengths especially in the UV-C spectrum. UV-C light has a cancer inducing effect on human cells. Therefore it is necessary to work in a safe way with those devices.

This work is focused on an open-source solution for rapid 3D printing of an safe UV-C radiation measuring device. Especially for research groups or universities which can not afford big safety labs.

After modeling and printing the prototype, a series of tests has shown the functionality of that UV-C Diode test system. By using black printing filaments and infill rates over 50 %, the transmission of light could be prevented and the system worked well.
