NICHIA Europe GmbH

NICHIA unveils high radiant flux density UV-C LED

NICHIA has launched a high radiant flux density UV-C LED that can help target the inactivation and sterilisation of various bacteria and viruses, including coronavirus.

The 280nm NCSU434B LED has the highest power conversion efficiency for a 3.5mm x 3.5mm LED, demonstrating a typical radiant flux of 62mW with an input power of 350mA/5.7V typical. By taking advantage of this flux density, manufacturers can tightly pack the deep ultraviolet NCSU434B in their designs to focus on maximising virucidal power. These technical characteristics will support applications such as water purification, near-surface sterilisation, and air purification systems to inactivate bacteria and viruses quickly, efficiently and cost effectively.
