Welcome to the International Conference on UV LED Technologies & Applications Conference (ICULTA-2018)

It is all about UV LEDs – the variety of their structures, manufacturing technologies, applications, trends, and novel developments. The International Conference ‘UV LED Technologies & Applications’ (ICULTA-2018) brings together experts from science and industry to crosslink and to discuss the related issues. The conference will be held from April 22 to 25, 2018 at the MELIÃ Hotel in Berlin, Germany.

Commercial relevance of UV LEDs is increasing; since the devices are gaining maturity they become more and more attractive for broad industrial use. Due to their manifold applications, they open up new markets, and innovative products can be developed. At the international conference, the state of the art of UV LED technology, integration of UV LEDs into modules and systems as well as and their application in industry and research are discussed. One focus here is on technically challenging short-wavelength UVC LEDs, which can be used, for example, in water treatment and disinfection.
