For the second time, ICULTA – the 'International Conference on UV LED Technologies & Applications’ – presented a forum for the UV LED community to exchange ideas and results on cutting-edge topics. The program of last week’s virtual event covered the most recent and novel developments in UV LED manufacturing, including applications in health care, environment and life sciences, curing, and metrology. A running theme in many of the sessions was the role of UV and UV LEDs to address Covid-19, in particular the disinfection of air and surfaces. Overall, the conference served to bring together the world’s foremost LED makers, users, and researchers in an environment that fostered an excellent and productive sharing of information.
At this year's conference, attendees voted on the top three ICULTA posters. The winners are:
Loris Busch et al. | Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin and Philipps University, Germany
for the poster Triggering the release of drugs from nanocarriers in hair follicles by the application of UV-LEDs
Arturo B. Soro et al. | Teagasc Ashtown Research Centre, Ireland
for the poster Ultraviolet light decontamination in chicken breast meat
Martin Guttmann et al. | Technische Universität Berlin, Germany
for the poster Electro-optical properties of deep UV LEDs with an emission wavelength near 230 nm
Congratulations to the winners!

Current global developments have increased attention to topics like disinfection and sterilization in medical environments with UV radiation, especially in the context of COVID-19 and UVC LEDs. ICULTA will discuss progress and innovations in the development of UV LEDs and their broad spectrum of applications. Three years after the first successful ICULTA conference, the follow-up event will be held from April 19 to 20, 2021. Talks by internationally recognized speakers have already been confirmed. To participate with oral or poster/slide presentations, a one-page abstract should be submitted by February 15, 2021.
The ‘International Conference on UV LED Technologies & Applications – ICULTA’ is going virtual in 2021! Save the date for the online conference, April 19-20, 2021.
Those who had oral presentations scheduled for April 2020 will be contacted by the Program Committee chairs to check who is willing to give an updated presentation next year.
Registration for ICULTA 2021 will be available closer to the event. Prices for registration as well as possible options for sponsors and exhibitors are still being evaluated and determined.
Stay safe and be well!
The ICULTA 2021 Conference Co-Chairs
The Senate of Berlin has decreed that all conferences with more than 50 participants must be canceled. We regret to inform you that ICULTA cannot take place in April 2020 as planned but needs to be postponed.
We are in the process of figuring out a new date and ask for a little patience in this respect. We will keep you informed.
