Osram Presents New Infrared Laser for Short-Range LiDAR Applications

Osram Presents New Infrared Laser for Short-Range LiDAR Applications

How long do you think cars will be steered by a driver? For autonomous driving to become widespread, several legal and technological hurdles will have to be overcome in the upcoming years. Nevertheless, car manufacturers and mobility service providers are already working on their visions for driverless vehicles. The need for autonomous vehicles to more comprehensively and reliably detect their surroundings makes the number and arrangement of sensors, such as LiDAR (Light Detection And Ranging), more critical. As the market leader for LiDAR lasers, Osram Opto Semiconductors plays a central role in the realization of these applications. With the SPL DP90_3, the semiconductor expert is expanding its portfolio with a component that has been specially developed for high-resolution, near-field detection in LiDAR systems.

Transparent Material Considerations for UV Optics in Horticultural Lighting Applications

Transparent Material Considerations for UV Optics in Horticultural Lighting Applications

Advancements in UV LED technology have begun changing the horticultural lighting landscape. Research is still ongoing to discover the extent of benefits and best practices of using UV light in horticulture. Using optics in tandem with UV LED light systems can help reach performance goals and optimize growing. Although there are several UV- transmitting materials available, not all are equivalent or able to meet the requirements for UV applications. Justine Galbraith, glass engineer, and Sharayah Follett, market development manager at Kopp Glass, Inc. discuss the performance considerations of various UV-transmitting materials and how application challenges are addressed by integrating optical elements.

Flex LED Based Smart Light System for Healing of Chronic Wounds

Flex LED Based Smart Light System for Healing of Chronic Wounds

LpR 71 Article - page 48: Chronic wounds are notoriously challenging to treat, because they do not follow the typical healing process or time-frame. The resulting burden is significant, affecting over 40 million patients. Blue light is known for its anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory effects in the initial stages of the healing process. David Kallweit, researcher at CSEM, reports about the joint development of a chronic wound treatment device with their MEDILIGHT partners, URGO RID, University of Heidelberg, SignalGenerix, Microsemi, Technical University of Berlin, and Amires. He furthermore shows how it works and discusses future prospects.

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.
