Currently, mankind is facing the threat of the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2). It highlights that from our families to society, there are health risks lurking around the world. At the same time, it also shows the necessity of taking corresponding measures against hygiene risks, such as sterilization and disinfection. People must take various countermeasures for everything they touch, such as water, objects and air.
For this reason, people are extremely concerned about ultraviolet disinfection, and have begun to use ultraviolet rays for disinfection in the public environment and homes. Recently, a number of water cups equipped with UV LED have appeared on the market to provide automatic disinfection. Some researchers have integrated UV LEDs into public doorknobs to provide automatic cleaning and disinfection. There have even been applications of UVA equipped with UV LEDs. This shows that UV LED is more and more close to our life, and with the progress of technology, the application form of UV LED is more and more extensive.

Since the beginning of this year, experts in the fields of virology, immunology, aerosols, architecture and physics have been studying ways to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus in indoor spaces. According to the research results, scientists recommend using UVC light indoors as a short-term, easy-to-develop and affordable method to suppress the spread of the virus. It is reported that scientists from the Institute of Photonic Sciences (ICFO) in Spain, the University of the Basque Country in Spain, the Technion/Israel Institute of Technology and the University of Southampton in United Kingdom. Southampton scientists conducted a study to explore existing UVC light sources, such as fluorescent lamps, microcavity plasmas, LEDs, other alternatives, and unconventional ways to generate UVC light.
《The Minamata Convention》 entered into force on August 16, 2017, becoming the first global agreement on health and the environment in the past decade. That is, after 2020, it is prohibited to produce and import and export fluorescent lamps for general lighting purposes with mercury content exceeding 5mg. Traditional ultraviolet lamps have always used mercury lamps to emit light, but mercury is very dangerous. As a new type of ultraviolet sterilization, UVC LED is the only reliable alternative at present.
Ultraviolet light is invisible light with a wavelength of 100 to 400nm.
With a wavelength range of 100 to 280nm, light called UV-C (deep ultraviolet) cannot reach the earth. But it has many functions such as sterilization, organic decomposition, photopolymerization and sensing.
Luckylight has high-power technology in the deep ultraviolet field, and pays special attention to its sterilization function.
At present, the UVC devices launched by Luckylight are as follow:
With more than 30 years of R & D and production, Luckylight actively supports the use of UVC light sources to stop virus transmission in the application of germicidal lamps. It has launched a series of UVC SMD LED products, which can be combined into sterilization areas of various sizes and areas, and are widely used Various UV sterilization fields.
With the high power of deep-ultraviolet LEDs, the application fields of deep-ultraviolet LEDs are still expanding from household products to industrial equipment, factories, and infrastructure. Lucky Light will devote itself to the development of high-power LEDs and continue to explore the potential of deep ultraviolet.
