Jointly developed with Asahi Kasei Group company Crystal IS, Inc. of the US, ultraviolet light emitting diodes (UVC-LEDs) with wavelengths from 250 nm to 280 nm were launched in 2014. Compared with the mercury-vapor lamps conventionally used as UV light source, UVC-LEDs are more energy efficient, require less space, provide longer service life, and are more environmentally friendly. They are expected to play a growing role in various applications such as water and air disinfection and sterilization. Our UCV-LEDs are based on aluminum nitride (AlN) substrate with low defect densities to achieve high performance and reliability.
