2017 marks three decades since Steve Van Slyke and Professor Ching Tang co-wrote the seminal paper that described the groundbreaking OLED device. Now, 30 years later, OLED technology has transformed the display industry, and enthralled consumers with device displays that have turned “immersive viewing” into an art form. Already, devices featuring OLED displays that curve and bend around device edges are in the hands of millions of consumers. And soon, when tablets and smartphones can stretch, roll and even fold without breaking, it will be thanks to the power of OLED technology.
Van Slyke, Tang and other OLED pioneers will describe their journey to drive OLED technology from promise to product at a special OLED Symposium on Tuesday, May 23 from 3:35-5:10 pm.
Kateeva’s executive team and key technologists will celebrate the achievements of the OLED pioneers, and to pay special tribute to Van Slyke, who has served as Kateeva’s CTO since 2010. Van Slyke has played a major role in helping Kateeva commercialize its YIELDjet inkjet printing manufacturing equipment solution to mass produce OLED panels.
