UV-C Advancements Enable Innovative Germicidal Uses Displacing Lamps In Some Scenarios

The bulk of germicidal UV-C applications today use mercury lamp sources. While those lamps are proven technologies, they are relatively fragile, contain a hazardous material, and must be powered on continuously. Meanwhile, UV-C LEDs lurk ready to usurp the UV-C lamp business just as visible-light LEDs and solid-state lighting (SSL) have taken over general illumination. This webcast will document the state-of-the-art in UV-C LED technology and project where breakthroughs in radiant power, germicidal efficacy, and lifetime might come. Moreover the presentation with describe how LEDs are capable of vastly different operational scenarios relative to legacy lamps and how some of those scenarios will match up well with specific germicidal applications.
