Specification and Applications for ProLight Opto's Recently Released UV-C LEDs

Specification and Applications for ProLight Opto's Recently Released UV-C LEDs Escalation of the Coronavirus outbreak have led to higher demand for Ultra-Violet C (UV-C) LED around the world. UV-C as a germicidal light source can inactivates microorganisms by destroying nucleic acids and disrupting their DNA with its short wavelength. The effective germicidal wavelength is between 200-290 nm; shorter wavelength is more efficient but is also more damaging to the human body. The major chip manufacturers make 265-285 nm as mainstream wavelength, because it can improve single chip's radiometric power and increase in sterilization efficiency. Read more »

Yujileds® Releases the Gen3 2835M Flexible Strip & Gen4 3030 LED

Yujileds® Releases the Gen3 2835M Flexible Strip & Gen4 3030 LED There is always a conflict between CRI and luminous efficacy. As widely understood, a promising color rendition which means a relatively full-spectrum is negative for luminous efficacy because the enhanced long-wavelength spectrum does not help with increasing the luminous flux which is at peak 555 nm sensitivity. The release of the 3rd generation of 2835M and 4th generation of 3030 LEDs aims to provide a balanced solution and improve the efficiency without sacrificing color rendition. Read more »
