Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) are solid-state devices that produce light when an electrical current is allowed to flow from the positive (anode) side to the negative (cathode) side. Like other solid-state devices, they have a very long lifetime if used properly. 

UV LEDs are one small, though important, part of a UV light source, but the rest of the system must also be taken into account when discussing the lifetime. This includes the internal control circuitry plus the cooling system to ensure the LEDs remain within their operating specifications, as well as the housing to protect the LEDs from environmental factors.

Phoseon’s systems use patented and proprietary thermal management, sealing techniques, optical enhancements, and control circuitry to maximize performance without sacrificing lifetime.
