Welcome to our UV Tech Insights for Aug. 11, 2022. I recently spoke with representatives of the International Ultraviolet Association (IUVA) - a fantastic discussion about continuing to share updates on the science of UV, technology and application topics, and standards development activities. While I am unable to attend the 2022 IUVA Americas Conference in September, I encourage those who are looking for a UV-specific program to check out their event website. And if you attend, please let me know what you found to be the most intriguing presentation or topic for discussion. We're always looking for feedback on coverage!
