Sunday October 22nd, 2017

We’re pleased to announce a one day workshop at the 2017 IEEE NSS-MIC-RTSD Conference at Atlanta on Organic Detectors and Materials. This workshop addresses the rapidly growing interest in the use of organic materials as radiation sensors, where they offer the potential for low cost, large area detectors with unique physical properties. Recent studies have included semiconducting polymers, single crystal organics and perovskites, and hybrid systems involving organic scintillator/photosensor combinations.

In this one-day event we aim to bring together all those interested in organic materials for radiation detection, with a view to sharing the current state-of-the-art, identifying common challenges to address, and building a cohesive research community. Topics will cover the material properties and device physics of the following systems:

  • Polymer and long-chained molecules
  • Single crystal organic materials
  • Scintillation/photosensor hybrid organic systems
  • Organic perovskite materials

The workshop will consist of invited overview talks by recognised experts in the field of organic materials and devices. Confirmed invited speakers include:

John Anthony, University of Kentucky, USA

Laura Basirico, University of Bologna, Italy

Olivier Dhez, ISORG/CEA, France

Gerwin Gelinck, TNO, The Netherlands

Bernard Kippeln, Georgia Tech, USA

Sandro Tedde, Siemens, Germany

Sergii Yakunin, ETH-Zurich, Switzerland


Workshop Poster Session – Abstract deadline 30th September

Attendees are encouraged to submit a research poster, which will be displayed during the workshop in an informal lunchtime poster session. Poster submissions from young researchers and PhD students are particularly encouraged. Please submit your poster abstract using the normal NSS-MIC abstract submission process at A single page abstract of up to 3000 characters is required, with no extended summary.

The deadline for poster abstract submission to this workshop is 30th September – later than the main NSS-RTSD abstract deadline. This is to allow delegates as much flexibility as possible to submit poster abstracts.


Free Workshop Registration is Required

Free workshop registration is required to attend this workshop. Delegates should register using the main NSS-MIC online conference registration process, selecting the ‘workshop’ option.
