International Conference on Simulation of Organic Electronics and Photovoltaics, SimOEP 2020

Due to COVID-19 a new way of conducting the SimOEP conference is considered.

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. The addressed topics include charge and heat transport, exciton dynamics, light propagation and the simulation domain ranges from nanometer to centimeters.

The conference is co-organized by ZHAW and is supported by the Swiss Federal Office for Energy (SFOE), Swissphotonics NTN and Fluxim AG. This year, the event will again host hands-on training seminars with R&D tools from Fluxim AG.

The three-day conference will cover the following topics:
  • Light management for enhanced light-absorption in solar cells and enhanced light emission in OLEDs
  • Charge and exciton transport modeling in organic semiconductor devices – from molecular to the device level
  • Charge transport modeling in various organic and hybrid solar cells: planar and bulk heterojunction perovskite and organic solar cells
  • Charge injection, transport and recombination processes in state-of-the-art OLEDs
  • Models for a variety of electrical device characterization techniques from DC, transient to AC operation
  • Advanced optical and electrical characterization techniques and experimental validation
  • Parameter extraction techniques
  • Morphological structure and property correlation
  • Advanced materials and devices such as novel LEDs, ionic devices, QD materials, and non-fullerene acceptors
  • Machine Learning
