Crystal IS Introduces Surface Mount UV LED
New LED is more efficient solution for biofilm control
Crystal IS has released a new high-performance short wave ultraviolet (UVC) LED in a surface mount package for biofilm and biofouling control. Part of its Optan range, the LED is based on native AlN substrates, which the company says overcome limitations of other UVC LEDs in the market.
According to Crystal IS, the new LED, which is available in wavelengths from 260nm to 275nm, enables far more effective and efficient biofilm and biofouling control, it also supports Total Organic Carbon (TOC) monitoring in water, and it can be used as a low voltage source of UVC light for calibration of cameras, photodetectors, etc.
"Our customers came to us with a difficult situation in controlling biofouling, where coatings, traditional UV lamps or mechanical wipers weren't that effective," said Larry Felton, CEO of Crystal IS. "We are thrilled that our latest Optan product will solve that problem, especially when it comes to ocean and industrial process instrumentation.
The LEDs feature a wide radiation pattern with a viewing angle of 100Â°; maximum drive current of 300 mA in continuous mode; light output of over 2mW; and a typical L50 of 3000 hours at 100mA.
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
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.
