Compact, solid-state ultraviolet (UV) light sources are finding applications in air, water and surface sterilization/decontamination, bio-agent detection and identification, UV curing, biomedical and analytical instrumentation. A better understanding of device physics and new phonon engineering have allowed us to increase the power and efficiency of deep UV LEDs with wavelength ranging from 247 nm to 365 nm. Prototype systems for water purification and sterilization have been demonstrated using… Expand
