“UV Power” Research Project is Working on LED-replacements for Conventional UV Light Sources

The optical outputs of the new LEDs are expected to be greater than 120 mW at 300 ± 10 nm, 140 mW at 280 ± 10 nm and 80 mW at 260 ± 10 nm. The research group is also working on making significant improvements to the aging behavior of the LEDs so they can be operated longer and more economically.

Osram Opto Semiconductors' IR Golden Dragon: optical output power increased by 20 percent

Particularly efficient at currents of up to 2 amps (A) With a typical optical output of 650 milliwatts (mW) the Golden Dragon SFH 4232A from Osram Opto Semiconductors is currently the most powerful infrared LED (IRED) in this housing. At a current of one amp the efficiency of this high-power component is more than 39 percent. The IRED therefore provides the basis for reliable monitoring and surveillance systems and helps to reduce system costs. This benefits general applications in process and production control in industry and camera-based surveillance applicat...

Osram Makes Progress on Green Laser Performance

Recently, Uwe Strauss from Osram Opto Semiconductors has demonstrated  the company’s improved green laser performance that are fabricated on the conventional plane of GaN,at the ninth International Conference on Nitride Semiconductors. According to Strauss , these lasers will target pico-projectors, where they can combine with red and blue equivalents to provide a lighting source with a small footprint that is free from a focusing element. Strauss introduce that the green source in a pico-projector producing a 100 lumen brightness must meet the requirements as...

OSRAM Extends its LED Product Portfolio in the Low-power Range (< 1 W)

Uniform illumination in linear and flat lighting solutions The new product family in the low-power range from OSRAM Opto Semiconductors starts with Duris E 3. The small dimensions and wide beam angle of these new LEDs make them ideal for applications that require uniform illumination. These highly efficient LEDs can be used as replacements for conventional fluorescent lamps in T5 or T8 luminaires for example. Duris E 3 has been designed specifically for applications that call for uniform distribution of light, high efficiency and low procurement costs. The main ...

A New LED Concept from OSRAM Opto Semiconductors Achieves 30 Percent Greater Luminous Efficacy with a High Color Rendering Index

“Brilliant-Mix” LED concept for warm white feel-good light Warm white light with a high luminous efficacy (110 lm/W) and a color rendering index (CRI) of more than 90 are the result of the new “Brilliant-Mix” concept from OSRAM Opto Semiconductors. The intelligent color mix based on powerful OSLON SSL LEDs in EQ-White and Amber covers a broad white spectrum from 2700 to 4000 K. Depending on the required luminous flux, a different number of these LEDs can be combined to produce warm white feel-good light of high quality that w...

Osram’s LEDs Lights up Near-desert Conditions of Ningxia

Currently, Osram Opto Semiconductors’s OSLON SSL LEDs have been installed in solar-powered street lamps to stand up to the harsh near-desert climate conditions of Ningxia, China. The 174 new street lamps line the 2.6km of Da Xue Road in Shizhuishan City. Due to the city is close to the Gobi Desert, with an average of 28 days of fine weather per month and great temperature difference between day and night, the local government has decided to use solar energy to power the new street lamps.  According to Xin-jun Dang, managing director of street-lam...
