I'm trying to find high brightness UV LEDs appropriate for this project:
which includes: "The most critical parts of this project are the UV LEDs, you are looking for 5mm Ultra Violet LED 2000mcd 395nm, 3.4V 20~25mA."
However, it appears that the mcd (luminous intensity) criteria is ambiguous for LEDs and other light sources that emit a peak wavelength that isn't visible to the human eye, such that a directional (solid angle) emitted power (wattage) criteria would be more appropriate. That might explain why it's so difficult to find anyone who can meet those specs. Is there anyone with experience in UV leds who can help? Thanks.
