The glass panels of a sky roof need to be coated in order to screen out ultraviolet radiation (10-400 nm wavelength) but without color distortion in the visible spectrum. Candidate coating materials are gallium nitride (GaN) with a band gap,Eg, of 3.2 eV, or gallium arsenide (GaAs) with a band gap, Eg, of 1.34 eV. Choose the best explanation for which of these materials, if either, will work.

DATA: representative wavelengths associated with different colors in the visible spectrum:
violet 425 nm
blue 475 nm
green 535 nm
yellow 590 nm
orange 610 nm
red 700 nm
