UVphotonics & FBH to Exhibit Latest UV LED Developments at Photonics West 2019

Posted Jan 11, 2019 by

UVphotonics and the Ferdinand-BraunInstitut (FBH) will be jointly showcasing their latest UV LED developments at the upcoming Photonics West 2019 event. The event is the world's largest photonics technologies event and will be held from February 5-7, 2019 in San Francisco, USA.

The FBH and Technische Universitaet Berlin (TU Berlin) spin-off from Germany develops and manufactures LEDs emitting in the UVB (280 nm – 320 nm) and the UVC (230 nm – 280 nm) spectral regions. Due to their customizable wavelengths, low operation voltages, ability to be rapidly switched and dimmed along with their robustness, the compact devices are suited for a great variety of applications. These include water purification, disinfection, medical diagnostics, phototherapy, plant growth, UV curing, and sensing.

Products to be featured at Photonics West 2019 include:

  • 310 nm UVB LEDs with up to 30 mW output power at 350 mA and 265 nm UVC LEDs with > 25 mW at 350 mA
  • fully packaged UVC LEDs with single emission peak at 233 nm and an output power of 0.3 mW at 100 mA
  • In addition to the standard wavelengths, UVphotonics will offer customizable LEDs tailoring the emission wavelength, emission area and spatial emission characteristics to meet to the specific requirements of the respective application

The FBH conducts R&D on (Ga,Al,In)N UV LEDs and performs all stages of device fabrication in-house, from design to epitaxial growth to chip processing, packaging and up to complete turn-key modules which are ready to use in applications. It will present its diode laser developments at the neighboring booth.
