Welcome to LEDs Magazine’s UV Tech Insights newsletter for Sept. 14, 2023. Ultraviolet technology has applications across multiple disinfection operations, including air, physical surfaces or objects, and water. Still, the power, lifetime, and wall-plug efficiency characteristics can vary depending on the microbes or pathogens being addressed and the aforementioned medium under disinfection. In our latest issue, Crystal IS leaders Eoin Connolly and Rajul Randive discuss the WPE of UV-C LED-based water disinfection systems in comparison with incumbent mercury-based sources – how they perform and what the economies of scale will be as the technology moves from point of use and point of entry to larger-scale municipal water deployments.
This issue also features informational resources on implementing UV-C LEDs into germicidal systems and emerging materials strategies for UV-C LEDs, plus relevant developments from our colleagues in the photonics and healthcare sectors.
