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: The hidden structure of the periodic system

The well-known representation of chemical elements is just one example of how objects can be arranged and classified

The periodic table of elements that most chemistry books depict is only one special case. This tabular overview of the chemical elements, which goes back to...

Im Focus: MPSD team discovers light-induced ferroelectricity in strontium titanate

Light can be used not only to measure materials’ properties, but also to change them. Especially interesting are those cases in which the function of a material can be modified, such as its ability to conduct electricity or to store information in its magnetic state. A team led by Andrea Cavalleri from the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter in Hamburg used terahertz frequency light pulses to transform a non-ferroelectric material into a ferroelectric one.

Ferroelectricity is a state in which the constituent lattice “looks” in one specific direction, forming a macroscopic electrical polarisation. The ability to...

Im Focus: Determining the Earth’s gravity field more accurately than ever before

Researchers at TU Graz calculate the most accurate gravity field determination of the Earth using 1.16 billion satellite measurements. This yields valuable knowledge for climate research.

The Earth’s gravity fluctuates from place to place. Geodesists use this phenomenon to observe geodynamic and climatological processes. Using...

Im Focus: Tube anemone has the largest animal mitochondrial genome ever sequenced

Discovery by Brazilian and US researchers could change the classification of two species, which appear more akin to jellyfish than was thought.

The tube anemone Isarachnanthus nocturnus is only 15 cm long but has the largest mitochondrial genome of any animal sequenced to date, with 80,923 base pairs....

Im Focus: Tiny light box opens new doors into the nanoworld

Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, have discovered a completely new way of capturing, amplifying and linking light to matter at the nanolevel. Using a tiny box, built from stacked atomically thin material, they have succeeded in creating a type of feedback loop in which light and matter become one. The discovery, which was recently published in Nature Nanotechnology, opens up new possibilities in the world of nanophotonics.

Photonics is concerned with various means of using light. Fibre-optic communication is an example of photonics, as is the technology behind photodetectors and...
