UVphotonics to show custom UV LEDs at Photonics West
FBH spin-off to present UVB and UVC LEDs with 10,000 hours lifetime and output powers of up to 45 mW
UV LEDs have opened up new prospects due to benefits like increased design flexibility, energy savings and reduced overall cost. Their customisable wavelengths, low operation voltages, ability to be rapidly switched and dimmed along with their compact size make them ideal for a multitude of applications. These include water purification, disinfection, medical diagnostics, phototherapy, plant growth, UV curing, and sensing.
UVphotonics - a spin-off from the Ferdinand-Braun-Institut (FBH) - will exhibit the latest progress in UV LEDs jointly with FBH at the German Pavilion at Photonics West 2020 San Francisco (USA) from February 4-6.
UVphotonics will present UVB and UVC LEDs with 10,000 hours lifetime and output powers of up to 45 mW at 310 nm and 30 mW at 265 nm. Also, fully packaged UVC LEDs with single emission peak at 230 nm and an output power of 1.6 mW at 100 mA will be showcased. Moreover, the company’s product portfolio has been expanded to UV LEDs with driver circuits.
The FBH spin-off tailors its products to customer-specific needs in terms of emission wavelength, emission area and spatial emission characteristics. Together with the Ferdinand-Braun-Institut, the company covers the full UV LED technology chain: R&D on (Ga,Al,In)N UV LEDs with all stages of device fabrication in-house. The portfolio ranges from design to epitaxial growth to chip processing, packaging and up to complete turn-key modules, which are ready to use in applications. At the neighboring booth, the Ferdinand-Braun-Institut additionally presents its diode laser developments .
