cfaed congratulates Prof. Karl Leo for being awarded the "European Inventor Award 2021" in the category 'Lifetime Achievement'! The prize is being awarded by the European Patent Office (EPO). The jury says: "German physicist Karl Leo transformed the electronics industry, bringing sleeker, brighter displays to smartphones and other electronic devices. Leo's pioneering work with semiconductors led to the development of the highly efficient, cost-effective organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) now found in the screens we use every day." The all-digital international ceremony was held on 17th of June.
Karl Leo was one of the Principal Investigators of cfaed in its phase as a Cluster of Excellence. He served the cluster also as a Research Path Leader and as a Career Development Director. He is still in close cooperation with cfaed as one of the cluster's Associate Members.

Fantastic news from the markets: On June 10, 2021 Xilinx, a world leader in FPGA technology with around 5,000 employees, announced the acquisition of Silexica. The company Silexica providing software development tools was co-founded bei cfaed professor Jeronimo Castrillon (Chair for Compiler Construction) in 2014. It once was a spin-off of his work at the ICE Institute at the RWTH Aachen together with Weihua Sheng, Max Odendahl, and his doctoral advisor Prof. Rainer Leupers. Silexica has been successfully producing bleeding edge C/C++ compilers and programming technology for heterogeneous computing systems since then, and secured over 28 million USD from international investors in the process. First seed funding has been provided via the BMBF EXIST program, and early technology adopters from industry included Huawei and Samsung.
"We are particularly looking forward to see the result of the integration of Silexica’s SLX FPGA with Xilinx’ VitisTM", says professor Castrillon. "The CC Chair is proud of Maximilian Odendahl (Silexica’s CEO), Johannes Emigholz (Silexica’s COO), and the rest of the team at Silexica for the amazing work over the past years!"

What is already established for inorganic semiconductors stays a challenge for their organic counterparts: Tuning the energy gap by blending different semiconducting molecules to optimize device performance. Now, scientists from TU Dresden, in cooperation with researchers at TU Munich, as well as University of Würzburg, HU Berlin, and Ulm University demonstrated how to reach this goal.

Einmal scannen und sofort die wichtigsten Informationen im Überblick… was Lesesensoren im Smartphone bei QR-Codes heute schon selbstverständlich leisten, sollen neuartige Sensoren künftig auch in vielen anderen Bereichen möglich machen.
Am landesgeförderten Kurt-Schwabe-Institut in Waldheim (Meinsberg) im Landkreis Mittelsachsen wird an diesen Technologien geforscht. Wissenschaftsminister Sebastian Gemkow und Regionalentwicklungsminister Thomas Schmidt haben das KSI gemeinsam besucht und sich einen aktuellen Eindruck von der Forschungsleistung verschafft.
