UVC Light: Disinfection on DNA level

LDS Wilm podcast 400

February 23, 2022

Light is one of the main reasons allowing us to exist on this planet. It also could take us out – especially when it comes to ultraviolet radiation. In this podcast episode, Alexander Wilm – Senior Key Expert Applications at OSRAM GmbH – explains to us how we can utalize UVC light’s unique abilities in daily live: A DNA affecting experience!

Moderation: Mario Arnold (Messe Frankfurt)

Topic: Light & lighting

“A lot of people don’t know that UVC radiation has already been used for example in terms of water treatment for many years. Now, with the approach of new technology like LEDs there are different properties of the light source that will lead to completely new applications,” says Wilm.

Wilm is Senior Key Expert in the application engineering department of the product line illumination at OSRAM Opto Semiconductors GmbH. In this position he is consulting customers on LED related questions in different fields like general lighting, horticulture lighting and also UV-C treatment. A deep understanding of the application and its requirements is essential to provide profound recommendations and to shape future LED products in a changing and evolving market.
