[Abstract]: UV sensitive polymer dosimeters are important tools in research to optimize UV exposures to humans and to reduce the impacts of UV on agricultural production. The erythemal exposures to humans and the effectiveness of UV protective strategies have been measured with polysulphone dosimeters. Polysulphone dosimeters have been employed with appropriate calibration to measure the previtamin D3 effective UV and UVB exposures to plant leaves. A dosimeter based on polyphenylene oxide has been found to have a dynamic range that is approximately four times longer than that of polysulphone and a dosimeter that is sensitive to the visible waveband has been developed to measure photosynthetically active radiation.
