Sandia: Output/wavelength firsts for deep-UV LEDs
News & Analysis 12/1/2003 Post a comment
Sandia National Laboratories is reporting new levels of wavelength/power output for deep-ultraviolet LEDs, which are considered critical to future semiconductors, biosensors and communications. Two deep-UV semiconductor LEDs registered output power of 1.3 and 0.4 milliwatts at wavelengths of 290 nanometers and 275 nm, respectively. Both were described as record-setting marks. EE Times' Colin Johnson picks up the scent.
