Applications of UV-LED

New applications are transforming the UV-LED market, and these devices are applicable to many important applications including:

Biomedicine

Fighting infectious disease with UV-LED light offers great promise to the future of global health.

Purification

With the ability to purify the air and water, plus decontaminate surfaces, UV-LED contributes to a cleaner world for us to live in.

Curing

UV-LEDs are great for curing and hardening in industrial applications such as printing and manufacturing.

Instrumentation

Using UV-LEDs in the laboratory paves the way for new drug discoveries, improved DNA assessment and advanced measurement.

UV-LED products are available at standard wavelengths of 265, 280, 285, 300, 340 nm. Custom wavelength includes 255 – 350 nm. An ideal replacement for mercury lamps, Nikkiso UV-LEDs are earth friendly and can be custom designed for a myriad of applications.

Ultraviolet Disinfection Technology

Ultraviolet (UV) disinfection technology has been the star performer in water and air treatment over the past two decades, due in part to its ability to provide treatment without the use of harmful chemicals.

UV represents wavelengths that fall between visible light and x-ray on the electromagnetic spectrum. The UV range can be further divided into UV-A, UV-B, UV-C, and Vacuum-UV. The UV-C portion represents wavelengths from 200 nm – 280 nm, the wavelength used in our LED disinfection products.

UV-C photons penetrate cells and damage the nucleic acid, rendering them incapable of reproduction, or microbiologically inactive. This process occurs in nature; the sun emits UV rays that perform this way.

UV-LED are used to generate high levels of UV-C photons. The rays are directed at viruses, bacteria and other pathogens within water and air, or on surfaces to render those pathogens harmless in seconds.

UVLED Basics

LEDs are produced by a number of companies globally on wafers that contain up to 40,000 individual LED lights. These lights are measured and categorized according to their characteristics. Each LED device is then packaged to allow electrical connection, thermal management, and physical protection.
