Mountain of deep Ultraviolet led wafer production line and patent, are transferred to Stanleyelectric.
♦ Osram acquired led engininc, special lighting layout and next city
June 6, 2017, Osram issued a circular, the company will acquire in San Jose, California, led supplier led Engininc. Led Engin is a focus on the provision of entertainment lighting, ultraviolet, horticulture, adjustable white light and medical lighting applications and other professional market of the super bright, ultra compact solid-state lighting solutions, its products are mainly Osram photoelectric semiconductor led chip.
Among them, in ultraviolet products, led Engin for industrial applications (such as printing, curing and dental market) to provide powerful UV LEDs.
♦rayvio together Digi-key Electronics, promote UV LED technology
At the end of August, the advanced public health and health company RayVio signed a new distribution agreement, with its UVB and UVC LEDs, to be shipped to the world through Digi-key Electronics, a global electronics distributor.
♦ Osram led the formation of a research team to develop high power UV LEDs
At the beginning of December, Osram Photoelectric Semiconductor (OSRAM Opto Semiconductors) said that it was currently leading a research group funded by the German government to jointly develop a high-power, market-oriented UV (UV) LED chip. It hopes to develop a prototype of about 2020 years ago with a 310 nm wavelength to about half of the UV-B and uv-c spectra. Osram said the new high-power chip "may also open up new areas of application."
♦ Japanese machine installed more high-power UV LED application in water purification system
In the Nepcon Japan 2017 exhibition, the technical leader of the Japanese machine technology research Gonnechun said that the Japanese machine installed the current technology has been the standard specifications, from 30mW to 45mW, in the direction of voltage, 6V, has been successfully UV UV light removal efficiency to upgrade, The heat resistance also changes from 15k/w to 7k/w.
It is reported that the day installed using Alganon Sapphire technology, and will be launched in 2017, the 285nm wavelength of uv-cled, 350mA, 6V below can reach 45mW, through the use of reflective layer, thermal resistance can be reduced to 7k/w.
♦ US team develops high efficiency deep ultraviolet led, lowest wavelength record in entrepreneurial world
This March, Cornell University's research team developed a small and more environmentally-friendly dark ultraviolet LED light source, and the current industry deep-uv led the lowest wavelength record. The researchers used the atomic-level control interface of gallium nitride (Gan) and aluminum nitride (AlN) Monolayer films as the reaction area, successfully emitting dark ultraviolet LEDs with wavelengths ranging from 232 to 270 nm. This 232 nm of deep ultraviolet rays, set to use gallium nitride as a luminescent material, emit the shortest wavelength of light recorded. The previous record was 239 nm by the Japanese team.
♦ National Starlight through special molding process can improve UV LED opticalpower
For the market to improve the requirements of optical power, Kousin in 2017 Guangya exhibition during the new launch of a cost-effective, high light power of a lens-shaped UV LED. According to the introduction, it is based on the original top bracket, through the special molding process to increase the hemisphere lens, the highest can improve the ultraviolet led optical power 60%, to ensure that the product performance in the process of better.
