Anyone know if there is a webcam available of seeing deep into the UV (like 200ish nm)?

Thanks!

Hi, this isn't quite your question but I just ordered a UVC light source that I'm curious to try to use to generate fluorescence in lead-containing products. It's a cheap toothbrush sterilizer:

@warren, thanks! I've also been checking out this website: http://www.ultravioletphotography.com/content/index.php/topic/1313-filter-transmission-charts/

Please keep me updated on what wavelengths you're able to excite/detect!

I got a UV-C lightsource recently too- pretty cheap and more powerful than a toothbrush sterilizer, its an EEPROM eraser. lots on ebay for $15-20
