LED Engin`s 365nm Emitter Breaks Barriers

The firm's III-nitride based UV LED Gen 2 emitters are claimed to deliver class-leading irradiance in demanding curing applications


LED Engin has launched a 365nm UV LED Gen 2 emitter that delivers up to 1000mW flux output at 2.8W power - claimed to be the highest radiant flux available in the market from a single die package.

The 365nm Gen 2 LZ1-00UV00 emitter produces its irradiance from a compact 4.4mm x 4.4mm footprint, one of the industry's smallest high power UV LED packages. It has a narrow beam angle of 70° that results in more flux in the beam and maximum power density (W/cm2) on target, at least four times higher than its closest competitor.

Due to its small size and high irradiance, the robust emitter offers unparalleled flux density for system developers of fast curing inks, adhesives and coatings. What's more, medical, sterilisation, currency verification, forensic and contamination inspection applications benefit from system efficiencies and cost savings driven by smaller emitters and optics.

The Gen 2 emitter, based on LED Engin's proprietary LuxiGen platform, delivers a combination of low thermal resistance (4.2°C/W) and an improved thermal derating, producing 80 percent relative flux at 100°C case temperature. This enables it to be driven at high drive currents (nominal 700mA) and high junction temperatures (maximum 130°C). The result is sustained maximum flux performance for high temperature applications that allows system designers to employ a smaller heat sink with passive cooling.

President and CEO of LED Engin, David Tahmassebi, comments, "We are proud to have made such a pioneering breakthrough in UV LED technology. Our latest high flux density emitter will deliver new capabilities to UV curing applications, particularly in areas where it is vital to produce and maintain maximum levels of performance. Those customers that have been waiting for dramatic progress in flux density will be very pleased with what LED Engin can offer."

The 365nm UV LED Gen 2 emitter (Part number: LZ1-00UV00) is available now from LED Engin and its distributors.


AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
