Re: [APD] LED Technology. And now back to CF

Most of what gets past the phosphors gets absorbed by the glass tube. So UV still gets out, as evidenced by, for example, photogray eyeglasses turning darker under office lighting than under incadescent light. All those phosphates that Tide puts in its detergent so that your clothes look bright under sunlight (UV) might be slightly excited but probably not enough to really matter visually. A so called "black light" which leaks a lot more UV, of course, is another matter ;-)

I know how they work. I was saying it's possible escaping UV fluoresces 
what it hits. But... it's more likely the phosphor is narrow as you say 
at the wrong freq.
