Welcome to LEDs Magazine’s bimonthly UV Tech Insights newsletter for March 16, 2023. My apologies if our coverage has sounded like a broken record over the past year with regard to a perceived slowing of growth in adoption and advances in UV-C disinfection equipment within the lighting industry. It prompted us to ask whether we had the latest insights into the market prospects for LEDs in this area, so we tasked new contributor Kristin Lewotsky with challenging our preconceptions in a feature from our April/May issue. It turns out that those researching and participating in this technology sector think it is moving forward on target, but LEDs will see a different rate of adoption by application segment as well as by the pace of performance advances.
Given that water systems are expected to drive UV-C LED technology adoption, we’re also featuring two articles on very different aqueous applications: water quality sensing and water sterilization.
Please stay in contact about content we publish and to propose contributed articles on UV advances and applications.
