Maximising the rISC II” is designed to allow people from a diverse range of backgrounds to discuss and exchange on the development of the thermally-activated delayed fluorescence (TADF) mechanism and other related research. Taking place on the 21st and 22nd June 2018 in the Durham University Physics Department, this second edition will be extended to two days to cover all new developments in the area, including the latest advances in the theory, molecular design, electrical and optical characterization and device performance.

This year, you can get the chance of showing your own work in a poster or short talk to the world-leaders of the TADF area, both from academia and industry. A small career fair featuring companies who are active in the field of organic electronics and related areas is also part of the program.

This workshop is highly relevant for our project and Prof. Andrew Monkman, PhD supervisor in EXCILIGHT, is part of the Organising Committee. Prof. Monkman is also part of the confimed speakers, along with the EXCILIGHT supervisor Dr Sandra Pluczyk and PhD student Anastasiia Klimash.

The plenary board includes leaders in the area such as the aforementioned Prof. Monkman (Durham University, UK), Dr. Thomas Penfold (Newcastle University, UK) and Prof. Chihaya Adachi (OPERA, Kyushu University, Japan). Prof. Adachi 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.
