    UV LED conference April 22, 2018 in Berlin

    A conference dedicated entirely to the development and application of ultraviolet light emitting diodes, the technology and their current and potential applications is scheduled to be held next year in Berlin. Abstracts for presentations and posters can be submitted to The International Ultraviolet Association (IUVA) before November 15 2017. The topics include all aspects of the used LED materials, manufacturing processes and systems. The applications include among others water treatment, disinfection in clinical environments, spectroscopy and curing. According to the organizers the conference will focus particularly on the challenges with the developments of short wave UV LEDs (UVC) for disinfection purposes. Link to the conference homepage.

    Research group at Cornell: A smart approach to enhance UVC LED efficiency

    The efficiency of deep ultraviolet light (< 280 nm) emitting diodes (UVC LED) for converting electrical power to UVC photon power (wall plug efficiency) is still low compared to diodes emitting light in the visible spectral region, for instance blue light (50%). A research group at Cornell University, NY has released a promising route for dealing with the basic physics that limits the UVC LED efficiency. According to postdoctoral researcher Moudud Islam, there are three basic problems that limit the efficiency of the UVC LEDs. Read more

    LG Innotek announces the first 100 mW UVC LED

    The South Korean semiconductor and LED manufacturer LG Innotek announces that the company has reached the magic 100 mW output from a UVC LED (200 – 280 nm). The increase in UVC output power is obtained by improving the light extraction from the LED. Lifetime is reported to be 10,000 hours. Read the full press release from LG Innotek: Link
