UV-C

Ultraviolet radiation in the wavelength band of 0.20–0.29 μm; a very harmful component of the spectrum of solar radiation that can cause chromosome mutations, death of single-cell organisms, and damage to the cornea of the eye.

This band is almost completely blocked by the atmospheric ozone layer.
