LEXINGTON, Mass., March 8, 2012 — Organic LED (OLED) inventor and Wolf Prize in chemistry winner Ching Tang has joined quantum dot product supplier QD Vision Inc.’s scientific advisory board, the company announced Wednesday.

Tang, the Doris Johns Cherry Professor at the University of Rochester, is credited with several innovations that led to the commercialization of OLED flat panel display technology, including the discovery of the basic heterojunction device structure.

He joins professors Vladimir Bulovic and Moungi Bawendi on the company’s three-member board, said Dr. Seth Coe-Sullivan, founder and chief technology officer.

“His creation of the OLED and organic photovoltaic fields has shaped 25 years of research and technology around the world, changing how we display information and harvest solar energy,” Coe-Sullivan said. “We look forward to him having a similar impact on our quantum dot devices in the lighting and display markets.”
