Nanophotonics, increasing efficiency and cost-effectiveness in solid-state lighting


Jointly with ForumLED Europe

Day: Tuesday, October 14, 2014
Time: 9:20 – 17:00
Access: Free, registration here
Venue: Studio 4 on ForumLED, GRANDE HALLE DE LA VILLETTE, 211 Avenue Jean Jaures, 75019 Paris – France


N4E Nanophotonics for Energy Efficiency Network of Excellence (N4E) is a network that gathers 10 European laboratories at the cutting edge in research on nanophotonics.

The Conference in the morning is built to inform one another about the latest developments, issues, challenges and opportunities. The second part offers the possibility to discuss directly joint future activities with the Nanophotonics and Solid-State Lighting communities.


The Solid-State Lighting community is driven by issues relating to materials, device processing and manufacturing, mainly focusing on cost and functionality. Novel ideas emerging out of the Nanophotonics community may address these issues by increasing device efficiencies (ideally with no cost increase), but these ideas are often seen as impractical and not scalable. There is a clear need for the Solid-State lighting and Nanophotonics communities to inform one another of the mutual constraints and capabilities and to explore the way forward, with the goal of ensuring the long term European competitiveness. The most suitable funding sources need to be identified and brought on board.
