About the School
The Advanced Optical Materials and Devices International School has taken place on 1 – 3 March 2016 in London. The School addressed basics and recent progresses in organic electronics and photonics with sessions on the following themes:
- Material design and synthesis
- Organic optoelectronic and photonic devices
- Material and device characterization techniques
The School has been organised in the framework of three EU-funded projects, namely SYNCHRONICS, iSwitch and OSNIRO.
The event has also been advertised on the International Year of Light UK website!
