The Effects of UV Glass Optics on UV LED Arrays
Brian Jasenak, Kopp Glass
Abstract:UV LED curing systems often utilize 100s of LEDs to achieve the necessary peak irradiance and energy density for a complete cure. Molded UV glass optics can help maintain peak irradiance and energy density while reducing the drive current or number of LEDs. The effects of a UV glass optic on the efficiency of a UV LED system are discussed.
