ultraviolet lamp--a effective solution to help with the COVID-19 crisis

12/06/2020

Recently, it seems that everyone is looking for solutions to fight with the COVID-19 crisis. From a Led manufacturer’s perspective, we have a obvious way : ultraviolet light. Human have known the disinfectant properties of ultraviolet radiation nearly 150 years ago , and have been using low-pressure mercury arc lamps to kill bacteria and inactivate viruses from 85 years ago.

The ABCs of Ultraviolet

The Commission Internationale de l’Eclairage (CIE) divides the ultraviolet region of the electromagnetic spectrum into three subregions according to wavelength:

Type Wavelength
Ultraviolet A (UV-A) 315 nm – 400 nm
Ultraviolet B (UV-B) 280 nm – 315 nm
Ultraviolet C (UV-C) 100 nm – 280 nm

We have some most commonly low-pressure mercury-vapor discharge lamps and UV-C light-emitting diodes (LEDs)  .They emit monochromatic radiation mostly at 254 nm, a wavelength that is very effective in disrupting the DNA&RNA of germs,viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens.
