There is a stringent demand world-wide for the development and adoption of highly efficient solid state lighting technologies to achieve radical energy savings. LED is now a technology that is finding its path towards the general lighting market, both indoor and outdoor. Significant advances in the understanding of materials, devices and systems are driving the development of novel light sources and light integration concepts.
Despite performances of organic LEDs (OLEDs) are still lower and costs still higher than LED lighting technologies, OLED lighting devices start to benefit from their strong advantages (large surface, lightness, thinness, ability to be color-tunable, flexible and transparent, recyclability). To fully develop its potential and capitalize on its highly desirable figures of merit, OLED technology must address a number of technical, scientific and technological issues related to materials, manufacturing processes, device architecture and system integration. These issues specifically include the development and use of performing phosphorescent emitters and transport materials compatible with dry and wet processes, the development of low cost methods to prepare the substrate – rigid or flexible - with the needed interconnections, the deposition and patterning of the electrodes and the organic stack, the inclusion of photonic structures to tailor the optical properties.
The purpose of this Symposium is to provide a highly cross-disciplinary forum for scientists, engineers and industry experts for ground-breaking cross-fertilization between the different area of expertise in the field of solid state lighting. The symposium will highlight recent advances in the synthesis of novel materials, thin films and nanostructures; characterization of layers and interface properties on the nano- and micro-scale; novel optoelectronic device architectures such as planar and vertical OLETs (organic light-emitting transistors); advanced manufacturing of materials and devices; and innovative photonic structures for tailored light out-coupling.
Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
  • Design and synthesis of novel LED materials
  • Design and synthesis of molecular materials, nanostructures and thin-film
  • Nanofabrication and assembly techniques for photonic structures
  • Advanced optoelectronic device architectures – OLED and OLET
  • Optical and electronic properties
  • Charge injection and transport
  • Modeling of optoelectronic properties of materials 
  • Device physics and modeling
  • Thin films, heterostructures, interfaces
  • Structure-properties relationship
  • Dry, wet and hybrid processing and manufacturing
  • Device and system integration
