Solid-State and Organic Lighting (SOLED)

02 - 05 12月 2014
Energy Change Institute, Australian National University, Canberra, Australia

SOLED focuses on new materials (both organic and inorganic) and new devices for lighting,their manufacture and lighting policy.  The conference will showcase the latest inorganic and organic materials developed for solid-state lighting, novel lighting structures, theory and modelling, and manufacturing and lighting issues. It aims to bring together people from along the research, development and manufacturing pipeline with presentations from industry and academia.

Plenary Session
Friday, 5 December
09:00 -10:00

Steven Chu is the William R. Kenan, Jr., Professor of Humanities and Sciences and Professor of Physics and Molecular & Cellular Physiology at Stanford University.  His research program encompasses atomic physics, quantum electronics, energy and energy economics, and biophysics and biomedicine that tests fundamental theories in physics, the development of methods to laser cool and trap atoms, atom interferometry, and the study of polymers and biological systems at the single molecule level.  For his work developing the theory of laser cooling of atoms, he was co-recipient the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1997.  From January 2009 until April 2013, Dr. Chu served as the 12th U.S. Secretary of Energy, being the first scientist to hold a cabinet position.  For more information on the Plenary speaker see the plenary page
