There are several recent articles on the use of ultraviolet
germicidal irradiation (UVGI), such as "UVGI Design Basics for Air
and Surface Disinfection" (Heating/Piping/AirConditioning, January
2000, pp. 100-110). Most, however, deal with either use in air
streams or to disinfect HVAC coils. Nevertheless, the article may
provide some initial information, especially since it does review
some data on exposure time and lamp considerations.
