Learn About UVC LED Technology and Designing for Disinfection

Klaran University, by Crystal IS, is an immersive program that gives Product Development and R&D Engineers insights for designing with UVC LEDs. Participants will immediately be able to translate what they've learned into product designs for water and surface disinfection using UVC LEDs, and bring a new set of knowledge and skills to their organization.

Led by experts in the field of UVC LED design and application, this program provides the ideal setting for direct, classroom-style education on UVC LED technology for disinfection.

By participating in Klaran University, you'll learn:

  • Functional design methods to meet performance and cost efficiency with UVC LEDs

  • Operational advantages of using UVC LEDs which you can apply to design better products

  • Knowledge to help you become a champion for new disinfection technology in your organization

  • How to approach designing a water disinfection reactor using UVC LEDs (2-Day Program only)


Fundamentals of UVC LEDs (1-Day Program)

Offered Monthly

  • Learn the differences between UVC LEDs and traditional visible LEDs, considerations when choosing a UVC LED for a disinfection application, and more. This includes an optional tour of the Crystal IS crystal growth and device test facilities.

UVC LEDs in Point-of-Use Water Disinfection (2-Day Program)

Offered Quarterly

  • Everything covered in the Fundamentals of UVC LEDs plus design factors associated with using a UVC LED-based reactor for water purification. Attendees also learn how to use tools for estimating the number, power output, and operating conditions of UVC LEDs.
