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. http://on.rocne.ws/JTBLfT
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.
