Possible to get Black Light from a Monitor?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I was wondering if there was any way to get black light from a monitor. I know that there are bulbs out there with black light coatings, and I was wondering if that same method could be applied to monitors. Anyone have any ideas? I was thinking maybe of a film (would serve as a filter) to put over the screen, but then I would need a screen that was able to emit light in the ultraviolet spectral area (at least I think it would be needed to get black light through the filter).

Thoughts?

Black is a complete absence of light...
turn the thing off and you have that.
otherwise wait until OLED

What are you talking about? You don't even know what a black light is obviously.

Anyways, OP, I have no idea how to implement this idea of yours. What purpose would this serve?

Yes.

OP, I'm pretty sure there's a way, but I doubt it would be DIY. Anyways.. good luck, if it works I'd like to know how you did it as I have a spare monitor and that sounds really cool...biggrin.gif
