At Photonics West 2019, UVphotonics introduces UV LEDs emitting in the UVB and UVC wavelength regions. Applications of the LEDs include sensing, phototherapy and plant growth lighting. Together with the Ferdinand-Braun-Institut, the company covers the full UV LED technology chain, from the epitaxial growth of LED wafers up to complete turn-key modules, ready to use in applications.
UVphotonics will showcase latest UV LED developments jointly with the Ferdinand-Braun-Institut (FBH) at the German Pavilion at Photonics West 2019 – the world's largest photonics technologies event which is hosted in San Francisco (USA) from February 5-7, 2019. The FBH and Technische Universitaet Berlin (TU Berlin) spin-off from Germany develops and manufactures LEDs emitting in the UVB (280 nm – 320 nm) and the UVC (230 nm – 280 nm) spectral regions. Due to their customizable wavelengths, low operation voltages, ability to be rapidly switched and dimmed along with their robustness, the compact devices are suited for a great variety of applications. These include water purification, disinfection, medical diagnostics, phototherapy, plant growth, UV curing, and sensing.
Featured products at Photonics West 2019 comprise 310 nm UVB LEDs with up to 30 mW output power at 350 mA and 265 nm UVC LEDs with > 25 mW at 350 mA. Also, fully packaged UVC LEDs with single emission peak at 233 nm and an output power of 0.3 mW at 100 mA will be showcased. In addition to these standard wavelengths, UVphotonics offers customizable LEDs tailoring the emission wavelength, emission area and spatial emission characteristics to meet to the specific requirements of the respective application. “We stay at the forefront of UV LED technology due to our close collaboration with the FBH and the TU Berlin”, points out Dr. Neysha Lobo Ploch, CEO of UVphotonics. “The FBH conducts R&D on (Ga,Al,In)N UV LEDs and performs all stages of device fabrication in-house, from design to epitaxial growth to chip processing, packaging and up to complete turn-key modules which are ready to use in applications”. The Ferdinand-Braun-Institut presents its diode laser developments at the neighboring booth.
