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.
"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.

Augsburg chemists present a new technology for compressing, storing and transporting highly volatile gases in porous frameworks/New prospects for gas-powered vehicles
Storage of highly volatile gases has always been a major technological challenge, not least for use in the automotive sector, for, for example, methane or...
When we put water in a freezer, water molecules crystallize and form ice. This change from one phase of matter to another is called a phase transition. While this transition, and countless others that occur in nature, typically takes place at the same fixed conditions, such as the freezing point, one can ask how it can be influenced in a controlled way.
We are all familiar with such control of the freezing transition, as it is an essential ingredient in the art of making a sorbet or a slushy. To make a cold...
