Black Lights – How they grow

Black lights

One of the many things which seem to fade away is when a person enters adulthood alongside cotton candy and candy necklaces would have to be black lights. This kind of lighting is usually only significant for a few school dances in junior high, but how they work is interesting for anyone who thinks learning is a lifetime pursuit.

Black light produces ultraviolet light which we cannot see. Sometimes we can see a glowing purple which makes perfect sense since it is just a step below on the light spectrum. The black lights are available in two bulb types – one like the traditional incandescent bulb and another like a CFL. The tubular shaped bulb is like a CFL light because it is filled with an inert gas and a bit of mercury, but the phosphor coating is different from a traditional CFL in that the one used in a black light soaks up dangerous waves and only emits ultraviolet light to shine.
