Nikkiso America, Inc., has initiated shipments of the world's highest power deep UV-LEDs, featuring three times more optical power output than is commercially available from other sources in the UV-C and UV-B range.
The Nikkiso UV-LED business will introduce the new high-power deep UV-LED product line for the first time in North America at the SPIE Photonics West exhibition in San Francisco February 10 - 12, 2015.
The Nikkiso UV-LED products are designed for applications in biomedical instrumentation and treatment, germicidal purification and sterilization, and industrial curing and printing.
Developed by 2014 Nobel Prize winning Professors Isamu Akasaki and Hiroshi Amano, the new Nikkiso UV-LED products include single-chip LEDs and multi-chip LED modules. Nikkiso's new single emitter products feature an industry-leading power of 30 mW at UV-C and UV-B wavelengths. Utilizing these devices, Nikkiso's new multi-watt module products feature intensities in excess of 100mW per square cm.
The devices can be utilized in stand-alone light sources, or integrated seamlessly as OEM components into end customers' final product solutions.
