Sorry but understanding carbon has nothing to do with the mJ/cm2 value of your UV light; it's all about knowing the principles of the system (in whole) and working out the optimum parameters / workflow that gets well with you and your materials, plus, which also gives the technical excellence / artistic results you're after... The more you get into minute details the more you move away of understanding the process as a whole. Just print, and print, and print; knowing the key parameters / principles and a couple of real printing trials / good note taking is worth thousands pages of nonsense theory! (Don't get me wrong; I'm a computer programmer and I also do a lot of operations research at work. I like math and models a lot, BUT, as a matter of fact, past a certain level, math and models can't give you what real / hands-on experience can bring; alt-process printing is mostly intuitive, rather than being strict / rigid / theoretical / reasoned / calculated...)
