Abstract

Hydrocarbon pollution of wastewater is unavoidable in industry and transportation. Pollution monitoring, which forms part of environmental protection, may be based on measuring the optical density of water samples. In the present work, a device for this purpose based on a diamond UV photodetector and a nonmonochromatic UV source is described.
