21st-22nd June 2018

‘Dr Ramunas Lygaitis’ from the PHEBE project is a new confirmed speaker

We are happy to announce that Dr Ramunas Lygaitis from Kaunas University of Technology will be presenting at the workshop this summer. Alongside Prof. Andy Monkman and Prof. Sebastian Reineke he will be giving an overview of the developments achieved through the EU H2020-funded PHEBE project. Dr Lygaitis will be presenting on the synthetic pathways of new blue TADF emitters for use in white OLED devices.

Dr Fernando Dias from Durham confirms his attendance

Another day, another confirmed speaker as Dr Fernando Dias, from Durham University, has agreed to participate in the “Maximising the rISC” workshop for a second time. Dr. Dias’ contribution to the TADF area is undeniable, with his recent review on the photophysics of TADF emitters and his in-depth studies of their physical principles.


Fifth speaker ‘Prof. Eli Zysman-Colman’ confirmed

We are pleased to announce that Prof. Eli Zysman-Colman, from St. Andrews University, will be presenting at the workshop this summer. Prof. Zysman-Colman’s research focuses on TADF for OLEDs and light-emitting electrochemical cells.

Fourth international speaker ‘Prof. Peter Gilch’ confirmed

We can happily announce that Prof. Peter Gilch, from Heinrich-Heine Universität Düsseldorf, will be presenting again at this year’s workshop. One of our original speakers from the first event two years ago Prof. Gilch is happy to return to talk more about the transient photophysics of novel organic molecules. After the first event a new collaboration was established between Durham and Düsseldorf, which has already led to a new joint publication. Thus demonstrating the networking potential of a workshop such as this.

Third international speaker ‘Prof. Sebastian Reineke’ confirmed

We are pleased to announce that Prof. Sebastian Reineke will be presenting at our workshop this summer. Prof. Reineke, from TU Dresden,  is a member of the EU H2020 funded PHEBE project looking into new blue thermally-activated delayed fluorescence emitters for white OLEDs. His research focuses on the theoretical, photophysical and device properties of novel donor-acceptor molecules and OLEDs.

Second international speaker ‘Prof. Christel Marian’ confirmed

We are pleased to announce that Prof. Christel Marian has confirmed that she will be our second plenary speaker! Prof. Christel Marian is the director of the Institute of Theoretical and Computational Chemistry at the Heinrich-Heine Universität Düsseldorf. Her research centers focus on the use and development of theoretical and computational electronic structure methods for the study of excited-states spin-forbidden transitions.

Stay tuned for more exciting announcements !

First international speaker ‘Prof. Chihaya Adachi’ confirmed

We are pleased to announce that Prof. Chihaya Adachi has confirmed his participation in our workshop as our first plenary speaker. Prof. Adachi is the Director of the Center for Organic Photonics and Electronics Research (OPERA) at Kyushu University, Japan and pioneered the TADF generation in 2012 by successfully applying these emitters into an OLED structure. Such achievement has started the revolution that has become the third generation of OLEDs.

We will be announcing more speakers soon so stay tuned.
