announced that its Chief Technology Officer and SVP Dr. Amal Ghosh received the 2019 Karl Ferdinand Braun Prize awarded annually by the Society of Information Display.
This award is given to an individual for outstanding technical achievement in and contribution to display technology.
Dr. Ghosh has notable achievements and contributions in OLED microdisplay technology including the invention and development of key processes for thin‐film encapsulation of high‐resolution OLED microdisplay devices; recognizing that white OLED with color filters was the most effective and efficient route to production; developing a low‐temperature color‐filter process for patterning color filters directly on top of OLED devices; and the development of a process to obtain a tapered‐anode structure for proper OLED functioning. Ghosh was also instrumental in developing direct‐patterning technology for OLED microdisplays, which has led to the fabrication of the world’s highest luminance and highest resolution full-color microdisplays.
“Amal’s contributions to both eMagin and the display industry over his 25-year career have been instrumental in the advancement of both microdisplays and OLED technology," eMagin CEO Andrew G. Sculley said. "As we continue to pursue commercialization for OLED microdisplays in industrial and consumer applications, I fully believe that with Amal’s support, eMagin will continue to be the leader in high-resolution, high-brightness, OLED-on-silicon microdisplays.”
