Monochron filters

by mrakuaku on Wed Nov 11, 2015 3:25 am

Hi, I was just wondering if there are any filters in the Monochron display (PRODUCT ID: 253 ) that would prevent ultraviolet light from passing through it if I replaced the back light with a UV one. Specifically in the range of 365-420nm

Thanks

Being an LCD display, there will be 2 layers of polarizing film as well as the glass and liquid crystal itself. We don't have any specs on the transmission characteristics of these layers, since it is designed to operate as a unit. You would have to experiment to see.
