<The 2019 Kyoto Prize Workshop> Science and Technology of Organic Light-Emitting Diodes: Present Status and Future Prospect

Others Ito Campus Applications open

Smartphones with vibrant screens that fold in half. Televisions that roll up into a box or are thin enough to hang on a wall like a picture. Highly efficient flexible lighting panels that wrap around walls.

At the core of all of these devices are organic light-emitting diodes, which changed the use of organic materials as light emitters in electronic devices from a research novelty to a technology with possible practical applications through the seminal work of Ching W. Tang and Steven Van Slyke.

To commemorate Tang's reception of the 2019 Kyoto Prize in Advanced Technology, which is given to individuals who have made significant contributions in the fields of science and technology, come hear firsthand from one of the fathers of the organic light-emitting diode himself at the 2019 Kyoto Prize Workshop.

The workshop will cover the present status and future prospects of organic light-emitting diodes and, in addition to Tang, features a slate of speakers from around the world at the forefront of the future of this technology discussing new materials, devices, and physics.

Registration is free, and all talks will be in English.

Do not miss this opportunity to hear today about the research that may be powering the technology that you use tomorrow.
