NoUVIR (pronounced new-veer), stands for No UV and No IR. No Ultraviolet. No Infrared. Zero. Nada. Zilch. None. Just stone-cold, pure-white fiber-optic light with absolute control over aim, focus and intensity. Early in the 1990’s Ruth Ellen Miller, a Magna Cum Laude business graduate with a post graduate teaching credential in Art and Design, and her father, Jack Miller, a scientist and optical engineer with well over one hundred U. S. patents, became concerned about photochemical damage to our nation's art and historical artifacts. Historical documents were fading to the point of becoming illegible. Artwork was drying, cracking and losing color, slowly turning dull and lifeless. The cumulative damage being done even in museum settings was horrific. At that time no one knew exactly what light was. No one knew exactly how photochemical damage happened. And, no one knew how to stop the damage other than by hiding everything away in the dark.

Ruth Ellen convinced Jack that there had to be a way to solve the problem of photochemical damage. What was needed was new science and a new system of illumination. What was needed was NoUVIR! After three years of intense study, starting with the work of Einstein, Feynman and others, NoUVIR defined the photon, finally resolving the wave/particle debate. Then we described and modeled the quantum physics of light including the interaction of light and matter and the processes of reflection, refraction and photochemical damage. Along with this scientific research, NoUVIR developed seventeen US Patents in fiber-optic lighting and a practical fiber-optic lighting system capable of almost eliminating photochemical damage. Then we did the hard part.

We made it simple to use and easy to understand. NoUVIR developed the science. NoUVIR developed the solutions. NoUVIR is changing the world. No one knows more about lighting or fiber-optic technology than the people at NoUVIR.
