Fluorescent Black Light bulb appears to be a normal tube but light is almost
completely in the near ultraviolet range. Black Light bulb can be used in bug
zapper or poster illumination in your home. Black light is commonly used to
authenticate oil paintings, antiques and banknotes. Black lights can be used
to differentiate real currency from counterfeit notes because, in many countries,
legal banknotes have fluorescent symbols on them that only show under a black light.
In addition, the paper used for printing money does not contain any of the brightening
agents which cause commercially available papers to fluoresce under black light.
Both of these features make illegal notes easier to detect and more difficult to
successfully counterfeit. The same security features can be applied to identification cards.
Other security applications include the use of pens containing a fluorescent ink,
generally with a soft tip, than can be used to "invisibly" mark items. If the objects
that are so marked are subsequently stolen, a black light can be used to search for
these security markings.
