Phosphor Global Summit 2015

PORTLAND, Maine--()--Smithers Apex is pleased to announce the return of the Phosphor Global Summit. Now in its 13th year, the 2015 edition will be held March 15-17 at the Grand Hyatt San Francisco in San Francisco, CA. Smithers Apex is also continuing the successful collocated event of the Quantum Dots Forum on March 18th providing attendees an opportunity to extend their stay in San Francisco for two top industry events.

Phosphor Global Summit 2015 is still the only event worldwide exclusively dedicated to phosphors. This crucial international annual meeting is where academia and industry members gather to discuss the key factors affecting the expanding market. Displays, rare earths, and luminescent materials all play an important role in spurring the conversation on utilizing phosphor materials in a wider consumer market and in additional applications,” said Andrew Smaha, Conference Director, Smithers Apex. “Phosphor Global Summit 2015 promises to be a crucial event for anyone in the luminescent materials industry to attend. With a broad range of topics covered including Raw Materials Supply & Precursors, LED Phosphors, Phosphor Design Considerations, Laser Excited Phosphors, Advances in Spectroscopy, and Bio-Imaging and Scintillators among others - the true value of this conference lies in the opportunity to compare luminescence options here more than any other conference.”

The 2015 advisory board represents the fusion of academia and industry with Dr. Thomas Jüstel of the University of Applied Sciences Münster and Prof. Dr. Andries Meijerink of the University of Utrecht representing academia.

Advisory Board members representing industry include Dr. Alok M. Srivastava, GE Global Research; Dr. Gregg Kottas, Universal Display Corporation; and Dr. Ingo Koehler, MERCK KGaA. Joining them are Dr. Madis Raukas, Osram Sylvania; Dr. P. Morgan Pattison, DOE SSL Program; and Dr. Oleg Shchekin, Philips Lumileds.
