International Conference on Simulation of Organic Electronics and Photovoltaics, SimOEP 2024, September 2nd - 4th

The SimOEP conference brings together modeling experts and device physicists from industry and academia in the field of organic and perovskite solar cells as well as OLEDs. In recent years we also host a session on emerging devices from batteries to quantum dot LEDs. The addressed topics include charge and heat transport, exciton dynamics, light propagation and the simulation domain ranges from nanometer to centimeters.

SimOEP 2024

Products of Organic Electronics, Photovoltaics and Batteries are successfully penetrating consumer electronics and renewable energy markets. Commercialization is accelerating continuously and everyone can enjoy amazing new products to buy, for instance stunning OLED displays for mobile devices and TVs as well as flexible organic solar cells. With the commercial success of OLED display products and the rise of perovskite solar cells and solid state batteries, one may be tempted to disregard the many research challenges that we are still facing in this field and which prevent an even wider exploitation of these technologies.

The challenges are manifold. So are the synthetic materials these technologies are based on. Physical models and simulation algorithms are very useful in this context. They enable scientists to explore the behavior of a material or device on a computer. On the one hand, the numerical models help to understand and interpret measurement data and to further develop refined and reliable physical models. On the other hand, the models allow one to optimize materials and devices. Progress in this field relies on an interdisciplinary approach that combines experimental, physical, chemical and numerical expertise.

The motivation of this unique conference is to bring together these experts and enjoy a fruitful scientific exchange among them that will focus on a comprehensive range of topics. This will eventually lead to ever more reliable, validated physical models which accelerate our research efforts. We are pleased to chair this conference that continues a series of successful international simulation workshops on this topic previously held in Switzerland (2010, 2011, 2016, 2018, 2020, 2022) and Spain (2012, 2014).

This year, the event will again be held physically in Winterthur & Fluxim’s R&D tools will be exhibited and demonstrated during the event.

Workshops & Exhibition

We will once again feature workshops utilizing Fluxim's R&D tools. Our product experts will present the newest features of Setfos, Paios, and Litos Lite. This is an excellent chance for you to get the inside track on upcoming development plans and to share your invaluable feedback.

See Our New Prototype Instruments

What instruments do researchers want next? That is the question we hope to answer in a series of short pitches where we will present prototypes of our future products.

Bring Your Devices with you

We´re going one step further this year at the exhibition and we are hoping to demonstrate how invaluable our tools are to researchers by measuring them while you watch.

As time is limited, we can only offer this service to a limited number of people. If you would like to participate, please contact Fluxim by e-mail (info@fluxim.com) and we will confirm with you prior to the conference. We can measure lab scale OLEDs, QD LEDs, MicroOLEDs, Perovskite Solar Cells, Tandem Solar Cells and Organic Solar Cells.
