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