The TR-74Ui-H Illuminance UV Recorder from TandD Corporation (Saratoga Springs, NY) can simultaneously measure and record four parameters: illuminance, ultraviolet light (UV), temperature, and humidity.

In science:

Photo-dissociation regions at the edge of molecular clouds illuminated by bright stars are unique targets for the study of the interaction of stellar ultraviolet radiation with dense gas.
Density structure of the Horsehead nebula photo-dissociation region
Most of the optical and ultraviolet luminosity (Lopt ∼ Lultraviolet ∼ 10−2LX ) likely comes from the accretion flow as it is illuminated by the X-rays from the neutron star.
Simultaneous ASCA and HST/GHRS observations of Cygnus X-2/V1341 Cygni
The pro jector flats provide illumination in the ultraviolet end of the CCD (λ < 3800 ˚A), the dome flats at redder wavelengths, and the sky flat permitted us to correct the dome and pro jector flats for uneven illumination along the slit.

However, photoexcitation of the 23S1 level to the 23P term may not be negligible for photoionized plasmas illuminated by intense ultraviolet radiation (Porquet et al. 2001b and references therein).
X- and Gamma-Ray Line Emission Processes
Ultraviolet photons with energies above 11 eV can photodissociate H2, and this can suppress the cooling rate and the ability to form stars in low-mass halos that are cooling by H2 when they are illuminated by the first stars (38).
The Dark Age of the Universe
In this geometry, ultraviolet and optical photons emitted by the source components either escape freely or are absorbed within shells of dust on the illuminated sides of clouds.
