Far-UVC gets its name because it is at the far end of the ultraviolet (UV) part of the electromagnetic spectrum.
If you look at a diagram of the spectrum, visible light is in the middle. Violet light, which is the shortest wavelength of light that humans can perceive, is on the left of the visible range. Ultraviolet light, which is invisible to the human eye and has even shorter wavelengths than violet light, is to the left of that. Far-UVC is at the farthest end of the UV range.
UV light is broadly classed into three types, moving from right to left on the spectrum: UVA, UVB and UVC, with UVC having the shortest wavelength (around 254 nanometres) of the three types. Since it has the highest energy, UVC is the most dangerous type of ultraviolet light to humans.
All UV light is capable of causing chemical reactions. For example, UVA, UVB and UVC can all damage human skin (sunburn is caused by UV radiation from the sun) and eyes, cause colours to fade and degrade materials such as plastics and wood.
UVC, known as “germicidal” UV, can additionally neutralise pathogens such as viruses by attacking the RNA that carries their genetic information, preventing them from replicating. But it cannot be used in the presence of humans.
Far-UVC has an even shorter wavelength of 222 nanometres and even higher energy, meaning it can neutralise viruses even more effectively. But its wavelength is so short that it is absorbed by the dead layer of cells that cover human skin, and by the liquid “tear film” that covers the eyes, before it can damage living tissue. This means it is harmless to humans.
Because this light is short-wave it is blocked by the first protein layer of the skin and eyes making it safe around people.
