UVC LEDs (UVC SMD LEDs) are a specific type of ultraviolet (UV) LED that emit light in the UVC spectrum, which covers the range of wavelengths from approximately 100 nanometers (nm) to 280 nm. UVC light is highly effective at germicidal and disinfection applications, as it has the ability to destroy the DNA and RNA of microorganisms, rendering them non-viable.


Here’s more information about UVC SMD LEDs and their applications:

Characteristics of UVC LEDs:

  • Wavelength Range: UVC LEDs emit light in the shortwave ultraviolet spectrum, typically in the range of 100 nm to 280 nm. This range is known as UVC and is further divided into UVC-A (320-280 nm), UVC-B (280-260 nm), and UVC-C (260-100 nm). UVC-C is the most germicidal.
  • Germicidal Properties: UVC light is highly effective at disinfection and sterilization. It can kill or inactivate bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms by damaging their DNA or RNA.
  • Low Harm to Human Skin: UVC light can be harmful to skin and eyes and is typically not used for direct illumination. However, it is less damaging than shorter-wavelength UVB and UVC light.

  • Water Purification: UVC LEDs are used in water purification systems to disinfect drinking water, wastewater, and other liquids. They are an effective and energy-efficient method to kill harmful microorganisms, such as bacteria and viruses.
  • Air Disinfection: UVC LEDs are employed in air purification and HVAC systems to sterilize the air by killing airborne pathogens, including bacteria and viruses. This technology is used to improve indoor air quality.
  • Surface Disinfection: UVC LEDs are used in devices that disinfect surfaces, including medical equipment, hospital rooms, and other environments where cleanliness and sterility are crucial.
  • Food and Beverage Safety: UVC LEDs are used to disinfect and decontaminate food, beverage products, and packaging materials to ensure safety and prevent spoilage.
  • Medical and Healthcare: UVC LEDs are used in medical devices and equipment for sterilization and decontamination purposes, reducing the risk of healthcare-associated infections.
  • Security and Currency Authentication: UVC LEDs can be employed in security systems to verify UV-ink features on banknotes and documents, providing counterfeit prevention.
  • Aquarium and Pond Water Treatment: UVC LEDs are used in the maintenance of fish tanks, aquariums, and ponds to control algae growth and improve water quality.
  • Analytical and Research: UVC LEDs are used in analytical instruments, fluorescence microscopy, and other research applications that require germicidal capabilities.
  • UV-C Disinfection Devices: UVC LEDs are integrated into portable and handheld disinfection devices that can be used in various settings, including homes, businesses, and healthcare facilities, to disinfect surfaces and objects.
  • UV-C Germicidal Lamps: UVC LEDs have been used to create compact germicidal lamps for disinfecting rooms, surfaces, and air, especially in applications where mobility and portability are essential.
