Virtual International Conference on UV LED Technologies & Applications – ICULTA 2021

Three years after the first successful ‘International Conference on UV LED Technologies & Applications – ICULTA’, the follow-up event will be held from April 19 to 20, 2021. Due to the Corona pandemic, the conference takes place one year later than originally planned and as a virtual event. Once more, ICULTA will bring together pioneers, leaders, and experts from science and industry to discuss latest progress and innovations in the development of UV LEDs and their broad spectrum of applications.

Discuss the state-of-the-art in UV LED technology and cutting-edge topics like disinfection and sterilization in the medical environment, especially with UVC LEDs in the context of COVID-19.

The conference comprises plenary lectures on deep UV LEDs and their application for disinfection and water purification as well as future prospects of this versatile
technology and approaches towards standardization.
»List of Plenary and Invited Speakers & Topics

Exchange ideas with UV LED developers and users from a wide range of fields, from medical diagnostics and plant growth lighting to analytics and sensor technology to curing of materials.

For two days, ICULTA 2021 features oral and poster presentations as well as many networking opportunities.
