Power Levels up to 300mW - Powerful UVB LEDs for Fluorescence Microscopy

17 May 2018

LG Innotek is continually increasing the performance of its UV LEDs. At the UVB wavelength

of 305nm, LASER COMPONENTS now off ers LEDs that achieve 110mW from a single emitter.

They are used in the 6060 single-chip series as well as the 6868 series, which features four

diodes which are integrated into one housing. Together they deliver outputs of 300mW

and more. LEDs with the same power levels are also available for the UVC wavelength

278nm.

 

UV radiation stimulates fl uorescence, which is put to use in many analytical methods such

as fluorescence microscopy. In this area, UV LEDs are increasingly replacing mercury vapour

lamps as radiation sources. Their advantages are obvious - LEDs are small and long-lasting,

do not require long warm-up phases, work without complex electronic ballast units, and do

not require explosion-proof housing. With continually increasing power levels, UV LEDs are

becoming attractive for an increasing number of applications.
