Luminus Devices introduces UV PhlatLight LED

April 6, 2010
Date Announced: 06 Apr 2010 Luminus Devices, Inc., developer and manufacturer of big-chip PhlatLight® LEDs, today announced the UV CBT-120, the company’s first big-chip UV LED built on PhlatLight technology. The CBT-120 is ideally suited for a widely diverse number of industrial processes ranging from epoxy, ink, paint, laminate and adhesive curing to semiconductor processing. The UV CBT-120, based on Luminus’ award-winning large monolithic chip platform, is well-suited for UV applications that demand a high-flux of UV photons. The UV CBT-120 has a power density of 1 W/mm2, offering extremely high optical output of 10W at 390 nm.“Traditionally, industrial curing applications have been forced to use high-wattage, high-intensity lamps due to the level of optical power density required for these applications,” said Alexei Erchak, CTO, Luminus Devices. “Now, with the release of the UV CBT-120, a solid-state lighting solution is available that can reach the requisite power levels and provide a new level of process control that is safe and reliable.”The UV CBT-120 features high thermal-conductivity packaging, with a junction to heat sink thermal resistance of only 0.7 °C/W so it can reliably be driven to the demanding power levels necessary for industrial processing. It is an energy saving, environmentally friendly light source lasting over 10,000 hours compared to 1,000 – 2,000 hours in traditional high intensity discharge lamps.Samples are now available, full production is expected later in 2010.
