UV C LEDs for Sterilization

CEL's high quality and high-reliability deep ultraviolet (UV C) LEDs emit light at either 265 nm or 275 nm wavelengths that destroy bacterial and viral DNA, allowing the sterilization and purification of a wide range of applications. This LED family includes products in hermetic or non-hermetic packages with output powers of 3 mW, 10 mW, and 30 mW.


  • The CL7001C3, CL7002C3, and CL7003C2 emit output powers of 3 mW, 10 mW, and 30 mW
  • 275 nm emitting wavelength is effective at killing bacteria for sterilization applications
  • High efficiency with long lifetimes; for example, CEL’s 3 mW UV CLED output version requires a typical current of 25 mA and has a lifetime exceeding 10,000 hours
  • Cutting edge AlGaN chip in a very high thermal conductive 3.5 mm x 3.5 mm ceramic package with a shielded transmittance glass lid


  • Self-disinfecting holders for toothbrushes and kitchen utensils
  • Sterilizing wands for items such as smartphones, tablets, and keyboards
  • Water purification/treatment
  • Sterilization of medical equipment
  • Disinfection of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems
