light

Forest, UV causes cancer. I am also thinking in terms of volume production of whatever method I end up with. I have some fiber optic materials on the way. Can anyone suggest an economical method of accurately measuring the light intensity at a given distance and direction on my experimental model. I...

LED

John and Dave thanks for the ideas. Fiber optics are an option and may be the way I go. Fiber optics require the proper fiber (glass vs plastic) with the proper cladding (or lack of) to allow circumferential diffusion of light at the distal 4-6cm only and a safe and economical method of containing t...

LED light methods

When I wrote the patent in 1998 I was planning on UV by way of fiber optics. Unfortunately UV causes cancer and there is no way I could ever get that past FDA. Blue light from 400 to 470 kills in a dose dependent fashion (time and intensity). The application allows for continuous exposure if need be...

LED system

I need blue wavelength light. I have some LEDs from Fry's that are T-1 which are around 2mm. The beauty of LED is DC and low voltage and selectable wavelength. I need the light to bathe the space from the vocal cords to the cuff of an endotracheal tube. The space is D shaped 2-2.5 cm and 2-4cm in le...

LED light experimentation

I am a physician with little knowledge in electronics or optoelectronics. I am trying to develope an experimental system that requires a very small profile and volume LED system with as much light intensity as I can get out of it. The requirements are: I want it to fit into the wall of a catheter cl...
