Crystal IS, a developer of high-performance ultraviolet (UVC) LEDs, has revealed what it says is the first commercial semiconductor based on native aluminum nitride (AIN) substrates. According to the company, Optan offers a unique technology platform for increased detection sensitivity, essential for analytical and life sciences instrumentation, from monitoring of chemicals in pharmaceutical manufacturing to drinking water analysis.

The Optan product is a breakthrough for design engineers looking to overcome limitations associated with traditional UV lamps, including deuterium and xenon flash lamps, stated the company. As an enabling technology, Optan allows developers to fully exploit the power of UV-based technology to improve productivity, increase accuracy and create greater flexibility in product designs.

The superior light output and spectral quality of the Optan UVC LED technology, made possible by the unique, low defect AIN substrate, delivers best-in-class reliability, and longer lifetimes, a game changer for life sciences and analytical instrumentation, including environmental monitoring, Crystal IS noted.

The Optan LEDs are available in peak wavelengths from 250-280nm and power bins from 0.5-2mW, ideal for spectroscopic applications because of their high spectral quality and reliability. Full availability for all bins under 3mW is anticipated for next quarter with higher power bins (3-4mW) available this fall.
