Unique scope of UV LED technologies and applications presented in Berlin: ICULTA-2018

12.04.2018

The first-ever ‘International Conference on UV LED Technologies & Applications’ (ICULTA-2018) is dealing with UV LED developments along the whole value chain. At the international conference, the state of the art of UV LED technology and trends are discussed. The conference will be held from April 22 to 25, 2018 at the MELIÃ hotel in Berlin, Germany and is jointly organized by the German consortium ‘Advanced UV for Life’ and the ‘International Ultraviolet Association’.

"The scope of the conference is really unique, bringing together researchers in the area of semiconductor materials and UV LEDs as well experts covering a wide range of applications including water purification, UV curing, plant growth lighting, phototherapy and medical diagnostics," outlined conference co-chair Prof. Michael Kneissl, Executive Director of Institute of Solid State Physics at Technische Universität Berlin and Head of the Joint Lab GaN Optoelectronics at Ferdinand-Braun-Institut, the ICULTA-2018.


Conference announcement

"We have put together a very exciting program. Even though it is the first conference of its kind, the interest is very good. We expect more than 200 attendees," he added.

ICULTA-2018 includes 4 tutorials, 31 invited presentations and 33 contributed paper plus a poster session on Monday and round table discussion on Tuesday.

Conference sessions have been organized along key topics, including ‘Semiconductors & Devices’, ‘Water & Disinfection’, ‘Medical Applications’, ‘Plant Growth & Food’, ‘Spectroscopy’, ‘Measurement’, and ‘UV Curing’. The focus is on the deep UV spectral range, spotlighting progress in materials, device technologies, UV LED modules and systems up to opportunities and challenges with respect to applications.

Advanced UV for Life

‘Advanced UV for Life’ is a consortium of 50 German industrial and academic partners working together on the development and application of UV LEDs that is coordinated by the Ferdinand-Braun-Institut in Berlin. Cooperation within a number of research projects is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research in the frame of the Twenty20 initiative.

Im Focus: Gamma-ray flashes from plasma filaments

Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.

The typical wavelength of light interacting with an object of the microcosm scales with the size of this object. For atoms, this ranges from visible light to...

Im Focus: Basel researchers succeed in cultivating cartilage from stem cells

Stable joint cartilage can be produced from adult stem cells originating from bone marrow. This is made possible by inducing specific molecular processes occurring during embryonic cartilage formation, as researchers from the University and University Hospital of Basel report in the scientific journal PNAS.

Certain mesenchymal stem/stromal cells from the bone marrow of adults are considered extremely promising for skeletal tissue regeneration. These adult stem...

Im Focus: The Future of Ultrafast Solid-State Physics

In an article that appears in the journal “Review of Modern Physics”, researchers at the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (LAP) assess the current state of the field of ultrafast physics and consider its implications for future technologies.

Physicists can now control light in both time and space with hitherto unimagined precision. This is particularly true for the ability to generate ultrashort...

Im Focus: Stronger evidence for a weaker Atlantic overturning

The Atlantic overturning – one of Earth’s most important heat transport systems, pumping warm water northwards and cold water southwards – is weaker today than any time before in more than 1000 years. Sea surface temperature data analysis provides new evidence that this major ocean circulation has slowed down by roughly 15 percent since the middle of the 20th century, according to a study published in the highly renowned journal Nature by an international team of scientists. Human-made climate change is a prime suspect for these worrying observations.

“We detected a specific pattern of ocean cooling south of Greenland and unusual warming off the US coast – which is highly characteristic for a slowdown of the...
