RayVio Corporation of Hayward, California USA, reported that the company has demonstrated record performance of deep UV LEDs. RayVio says its proprietary LED technology enables high optical output power and efficiency. A single chip with its technology can delivering 45 mW continuous power in the deep UV wavelengths from a 0.15 mm2 emitting area, the company says. At the emitting surface, the chip provides a record CW power density of 30 W/cm2.
Company co-founder and CTO, Dr. Yitao Liao, and Professor Theodore Moustakas, a pioneer of the blue LED invented RayVio’s core technology. RayVio exclusively licenses the technology from Boston University. RayVio claims that the technology enables the company to deliver the highest optical power at the lowest cost that is commercially available.
“Our novel UV LED technology continues to validate its superiority,” said Dr. Yitao Liao, RayVio co-founder and CTO. “This enables us to unleash Haitz’ Law for deep UV LEDs, the same Haitz’ Law that enabled blue and white LEDs to revolutionize the lighting and display industries.”
RayVio indicated that the company is working closely with OEM customers to develop a host of UV LED integrated products. Applications range from dermatology and biomedical instrumentation, to digital curing, as well as surface, air, and water disinfection for consumers.
Dr. Robert C. Walker, RayVio co-founder and CEO commented, ”Leading OEM and consumer electronics manufacturing partners have been evaluating our current products for the past several months, while we continue to install more capacity at our facility in Silicon Valley and ramp global supply chain partners to satisfy customer demand.”
RayVio boasts that the company’s capital-efficient and scalable manufacturing process allows for rapid capacity expansion and lower manufacturing cost.
