Hydrogen emits even more actinic UV than Hg does. Hg can also be used but it is
up to the lamp makers. The bug killer lamps have a coating or glass coloring
that stops anything but UV-A and UV-B. Eprom erasure requires UV-C. Efficient
phosphors exist for many wavelengths. Try a UV led on some shop labels (green,
orange, yellow, red, even white - works even with paper).
