Call for
Organic materials are interesting for a myriad of photonic and optoelectronic applications due to their tunability of key electronic and optical properties, their versatility of processing, the softness of the solid films formed, and their potential to allow for non-toxic materials. Currently monochrome organic light-emitting diodes are a commercial product used in displays, while organic photovoltaics and sensors for low cost, bio, artificial skin, or wearable applications have seen rapid development in de latest years. On the basis of this very versatile material platform, it is expected that many more, innovative application concepts will be discovered and developed.

Hereby does fundamental research on organic electronics and photonics form the backbone for the discovery of new applications, especially, when materials’ properties are evaluated free of pre-determined applications. Moreover, basic experimental and theoretical research on charge, energy and spin transfer processes, organic-organic interfaces and their electronic structure, will provide structure-property relations and progress existing applications.

The focus of this conference will be on the following topics:

  • optoelectronic organic devices including light-emitting diodes, solar cells, photodetectors, sensors, transistors and switches
  • organic optical systems: waveguides, energy converters, cavities, light directors
  • organic bioelectronics with focus on optics
  • basic research in organic electronics and photonics: spectroscopy, charge generation, transport and recombination, spin, charge and electron transfer interfaces, theoretical calculations and modelling, structure-property relations.
