BELLEVUE, Wash., July 14, 2011 — eMagin Corp., an OLED microdisplays and virtual imaging technologies company, announced a partnership with the University of Rochester in New York to develop next-generation OLEDs for high-efficiency solid-state lighting systems.

The research effort is being funded by the US Department of Energy in a three-year, $1.3 million effort to more than triple the light output of the current generation of OLEDs. The grant to help develop the next generation of high-efficiency solid-state lighting systems was awarded to the University of Rochester and eMagin Corp.

“While OLEDs are giving consumers efficient, brighter and faster electronic displays, about 80 percent of light is trapped inside the device and is wasted,” said Andrew G. Sculley, president and CEO of eMagin. “Therefore, the partnership will seek to drastically improve the amount of useful light emitted from the device by developing technologies that use nanoparticle-based plasmonic scattering of light.

“Solid-state lighting is one of the areas the DoE is focusing on as it seeks solutions that will help optimize energy consumption in the US while reducing carbon emissions. Success in this research effort has the potential to revolutionize the multibillion-dollar markets for home, commercial and industrial lighting systems. In addition, advances in OLED technology for solid-state lighting systems could also help make our microdisplays even more efficient, further improving our competitive position in the military, commercial and industrial markets we serve,” Sculley said.
