AbstractThis experiment was carried out with the help of spectrophotometer using an artificial UV light source to find -out the percentage transmission of UVA and UVB regions of the UV spectrum. The aim of the experiment was to select the transparent medium which would block mum UVB at the same time allowing mammum UVA to pass through thus reducing the unwanted side effects of UVB light and reducing the efficacy of PUVASOL. It was observed that an ordinary plain 3.3 mm colorless glass was the best transparent medium and with its use a simple solarium could be constructed to treat patients on PUVASOL with sunlight as the source of UV light.
