Testing the solar ultraviolet transmission of clothing and materials

Parisi, Alfio V. & Kimlin, Michael G. (1999) Testing the solar ultraviolet transmission of clothing and materials. Australian Science Teachers' Journal, 45(1), pp. 51-53.


An experiment is described to expose students in a ‘hands-on’ manner to the physics of instrumentation, measurement, electromagnetic radiation and in particular UV radiation. The students will have no difficulty in setting up the apparatus themselves and they will obtain reliable results within a normal school practical period. Additionally, the students will undertake a scientific experiment relevant to everyday life.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
