Inventor of OLED – Professor Ching Tang

It is all too easy to forget where good ideas come from.  I wanted to pass along a link to an article in the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle talking about Professor Ching Tang the inventor of OLED technology, who in the 1980s was at Kodak, but is today a professor at the University of Rochester.

Last year he was awarded the coveted Wolf Prize in chemistry.  I have to wonder if he ever imagined the impact his idea would have 30 years later.  Together with his colleague,  Steven Van Slyke, many patents were awarded for this technology.
