Modeling UV-C Irradiation chambers for mask decontamination using Zemax OpticStudio
Ultraviolet decontamination of personal protective equipment, particularly masks, is important in situations where mask reuse is practiced. To assist in the development of UV-C decontamination chambers, Stanford University constructed ray tracing models in OpticStudio for two distinct geometries, namely a rectangular cabinet and a cylindrical can. In this presentation, Dr. Jeff Wilde describes the model details and shows simulation results that compare favorably to experimental measurements.
