Nichia Prepares Mass Production of Deep UV LED That Can Kill 99.99% of Coronaviruses on a Surface

Major Japanese LED manufacturer Nichia will be working with other OEMs to incorporate its deep UV LED into various devices and equipment such as air purifiers and air conditioning systems. The deep UV LED was jointly developed by Nichia and a team of researchers from Tokushima University. According to their study, a UVC LED with a wavelength of 280nm and a radiant flux of 70mW can annihilate 99.99% of coronaviruses on a surface if the irradiation takes place from a distance of 5cm or less and lasts at least 30 seconds. The UV spectrum is further divided into four segments based on wavelength range, and UVC or deep UV is between 200nm and 280nm. UVC light has been demonstrated to be highly effective for disinfection applications. https://www.ledinside.com/node/31845
