Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) are well-known mass-produced components. Special LEDs have been designed for use in the medical field or fiber-optical data transmission. LEDs for these fields of application are available at LASER COMPONENTS.
1070 nm InGaAs LEDs for Medical Applications
This inexpensive LED was developed for use in medical technology to increase the receptivity of the brain.
Arima Lasers Corp. developed a 1070 nm InGaAs LED that delivers an optical output power of typically 2 mW (4 mW) at an operating current of 50 mA (100 mA).
This inexpensive LED is housed in a 5 mm clear epoxy housing.
Treatment of Alzheimer‘s
Independent studies performed at the University of Sunderland have shown that regular exposure to weak 1070 nm light can increase the receptivity of the brain and improve learning performance. This is a promising breakthrough in the medical treatment of Alzheimer‘s.
Quickly Heal a Herpes Simplex Infection
According to the National Institute of Health, the 1070 nm LED wavelength can also be used to speed up the healing process when treating a herpes simplex infection.
