- Developing efficient, reliable UV LEDs
- COMPOUND SEMICONDUCTOR
SALES OF THE UV LED are rising, as more devices are being deployed in applications ranging from the disinfection of water, air and surfaces to medical diagnostics, phototherapy, and the curing of various materials. The success of this device is driven by its superior attributes to the incumbent source, the mercury lamp. The UV LED can be turned on and off in an instant, it doesn’t run hot, it is environmentally friendly, radiation hard, and its emission spectra can be selected to cover almost anywhere in the UVA, UVB and UVC range. What’s more, it has a low operating voltage, a compact size and it is robust, making it ideal for portable, battery powered applications.
