MRS Spring Meeting 2016 – Abstract Deadline extended!

You may have heard that the abstract deadline for the 2016 MRS Spring Meeting in Phoenix, AZ, has been extended until October 30, 2015 (11:59 pm ET) – that is 3 days from now. If you were too late for the original deadline, this is your change. We would like to bring to your attention our Symposium EP1, which deals with systems and devices based on organic materials with a important focus on the utilization of their excitonic properties. Together with my colleagues Malte C. Gather, Marc A. Baldo, and Chihaya Adachi, I am looking forward to your submissions.Bildschirmfoto 2015-10-27 um 16.46.42

Let’s meet in Phoenix and talk spins, TADF, plasmonics, up- and down-conversion, polaritons, lasing, sensing, bioinspired systems, phosphorescence, strong coupling, OLEDs, optics, single crystals.

One last point: Please spread the word if you know someone, who might be interested in our Symposium EP! but does not know about it. Thank you!

Exciting conference, exciting session: MRS Spring 2016 – Symposium EP1

CfP, MRS Spring 2016, EP1

Together with my colleagues Malte C. Gather, Chihaya Adachi and Marc A. Baldo, I am organizing a symposium for the first ever MRS Spring Meeting in Phoenix next year (2016). The conference will run from March 28 to April 1. The topic of our Symposium EP1 is: Organic Excitonic Systems and Devices. We hope that this symposium will bring together the broad range of research and development in the field of organic and soft matter sciences that make use of the excitonic properties found in these materials.

Excitonic = exciting, right?

We are excited to receive your submissions for oral presentations and posters. Click on the Call for Papers image, to get a larger view. We already have a great assembly of invited speakers for this  meeting.

The abstract deadline is October 15th, 2015. Remember, no late submissions can be considered for acceptance, so don’t be late with your contribution.

We also highly appreciate, if you spread the word!

Two open PhD positions in the field of organic photonics and excitonics

Currently, I am looking for talented students who are interested in joining my research group in Dresden, Germany, at the Technische Universität Dresden to pursue their PhD studies. There are two positions open right now, for a 3-year appointment each. The positions should be filled to the earliest possible time.

Everybody interested in the field of organic photonics and excitonics is welcome to apply. Please directly contact me either following the respective instructions on the call (english version, german version) or directly (reineke [at]
