Development of novel UV LED technology using cathodoluminescence inspection

UV LED devices are more and more commonly used in skin treatment, tanning, and plant lighting, as well as killing or inactivating pathogens for disinfection of laboratory equipment, air, water, and food. However, developing and producing efficient UV LED devices still poses a challenge. Read this application note to learn how cathodoluminescence can be used to inspect UV LEDs.
