A hydrogen flame is invisible but emits ultraviolet (and infrared) radiation. How much UV does a hydrogen flame emit for a given reactant flow or a given heating power? Could a hydrogen flame be used as a useful UV light source? (Or if not, could other chemical reactions be used as such?)

found this on google
