A Survey on wavelength based application of ultraviolet LED

Authors(1) :-G. Udhaya Sankar

The most important factor of LED and any other sources of light depends upon wavelength. Hence, wavelength plays a major role in different applications. So, it becomes necessary to know nature of materials, to produce lights with different wavelengths. The present paper focuses on a study of ultraviolet LED and its applications. The paper describes more specifically UV-A, UV-B and UV-C types. Applications of security, sterilization and herpetology have been discussed.
