Black Light- Used often on our ghost hunting investigations black lights are also known as UV Lights or Ultra Violet Lights or even a Wood's lamp.  A small battery powered unit will be sufficientEMF meter under a black light for most ghost hunters.  A black light may be used to aid in the detection of hoaxing devices sometimes found in a suspected haunted area.    When used properly this light is capable of revealing thin laser lights, fishing line, holograms, transparencies, and other devices sometimes used in ghost hoaxes.

Our paranormal investigators have also 'heard' some claims that UFO abductees were showing traces of foreign materials on and or in their skin that are sometimes visible under different light spectrums.  In addition this can be used for finding human fluid long cleaned up such as blood. 

Technically speaking a black light will have only a small amount of visible spectrum light emitting.  Ghost hunters need to recognize the following; the wavelength of a black light isBlack light spectrum charted on a graph typically around 400-410 nm or nanometers.  For this reason, black lights with a large power source are harmful to human skin and eyes especially.

Straight Ultra Violet light can have wavelengths as short as 10nm or as long as 40nm.  This is usually in conjunction with energies of 3 eV to that of 124 eV.  If you've ever had a sunburn you've encounter ultra violet wavelengths.  Ultra violet gains its name from Latin where "ultra" translates as "beyond."  Ultra violet light is beyond what the human eye can visually detect.  Violet happens to be how the shortest wavelength the human eye can interpret appears.  There are names for each range of ultra violet light as it moves through the wavelength spectrum.  The black light is also known as Ultraviolet A or long wave ultraviolet.  This is the range mentioned earlier of approximately 410nm through 315nm.

The utilitarian in me appreciates that this can also be applied to your Halloween decorations, traveling in Motel rooms (maybe it's better you don't know), or for those college posters that most people go through the phase of hanging on their doors.  I would think that most ghost hunters have the potential for some really killer Halloween parties.

We will continually be adding information to the above item as resources permit.  We have started creating some additional knowledge centers on paranormal investigating equipment in general and for the EMF meter.  We have included some links below to start you on your way.  The EMF topic is just to big to capsulate into one single page.  Below are some editorials that range from our personal rants on industry issues, to more scholarly scientific journal type entries, to that of a simple opinion editorial.  We highly recommend that you start at the top and finish in that order at the bottom!  Enjoy:
