At this year’s SPIE Photonics Europe 2018 in Strasbourg, France, the new conference Organic Electronics and Photonics: Fundamentals and Devices (Conference 10687) will celebrate its inaugural meeting. My colleague Prof. Koen Vandewal (now at Hasselt University) and I are jointly chairing this conference.
This first conference lasts for three days (24 – 26 April 2018) and aims to concentrate the exciting and diverse research using organic materials for electronic and/or photonic applications. The conference starts on Tuesday with a full day focusing on thermally activated delayed fluorescence (TADF), followed by the Wednesday programme discussing organic photovoltaics and photodetectors as well as other optoelectronic and photonic devices, and concludes on Thursday with morning and afternoon sessions on organic light-emitting diodes.
The PHEBE consortium is well represented at this event with Prof. Andy Monkman (Durham University) giving an invited talk in the TADF Session on Tuesday with the title ‘Ultrafast reverse intersystem crossing and 100% PLQY in the same TADF molecule, really!’ followed by another contribution from the PHEBE consortium about white OLEDs using blue TADF emitters by Ludwig Popp et al. (TU Dresden and Kaunas University of Technology) ‘Warm-white hybrid emission from TADF and phosphorescence and its application in OLEDs’. The conference is co-organized by the PHEBE member Prof. Sebastian Reineke.
Many experts in the field of OLEDs and TADF, including Wolfgang Brütting, Reinder Coehoorn, Vladimir Dyakonov, Franky So, Seunghyup Yoo, Eli Zysman-Coleman, will be presenting their newest results. With Cynora GmbH and Osram OLED GmbH, leading European companies working on OLEDs will be also represented at the conference.
