Luminus Devices Inc of Sunnyvale, CA, USA – which designs and makes LEDs and solid-state light sources for the global illumination market – has expanded its ultraviolet (UV) LED portfolio with two new 280nm devices for the medical and health & well-being markets.

The standard-footprint 3535 surface-mount emitter is a 350mA device with peak output up to 60mW. The second ultra-compact emitter is 1.3mm by 1.3mm and only 0.85mm tall, and delivers 3mW at 20mA and peak output of 11mW at 100mA.

“Air, surface and water disinfection markets will see a significant number of new products and new product categories over the next 36 months,” says Stephane Bellosguardo, VP of specialty lighting marketing. “Just as the computer industry was driven by ever smaller and faster processors, so will be the innovation in markets like air and water purification with miniature products like our 1313 UV-C LED.”

The new UV-C LEDs are just the latest additions to a UV portfolio that offers both surface-mount devices and modules in the UV-A spectrum for horticulture, curing, additive manufacturing and medical instrumentation applications.

“UV-LED-based industrial applications are already growing rapidly and represent an increasingly important segment of our non-visible specialty products alongside infra-red emitters,” says Bellosguardo.
