UV-C LEDs Primed For Sterilization And Disinfection Applications


CEL’s family of Deep UltraViolet (UV-C) LEDs are viable for use in a wide range of sterilization and disinfection applications including consumer goods such as self-disinfecting holders for toothbrushes and kitchen utensils as well as sterilizing wands for items such as smartphones, tablets and keyboards. Other applications include water treatment, sterilization of medical equipment and disinfection of heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems.


The components feature an emitting wavelength of 275 nm, which is a particularly effective wavelength in the UV-C spectrum at killing bacteria for sterilization applications. In addition, the devices boast high efficiency with long lifetimes. For example, CEL’s 3mW output version, with a 25-ma current requirement, has a lifetime exceeding 10,000 Hours. CEL LEDs consist of an AlGaN chip in a very high thermal conductive 3.5 mm x 3.5 mm ceramic package with a shielded transmittance glass lid.
