Professor Ching Tang’s pioneering work led to the practical use of organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) and their widespread application in displays and lighting – from smartphones to TVs. He arrived at this achievement through studying light emission processes in electrically driven organic materials and invented a new device structure in which two carefully selected materials were stacked, allowing for high-efficiency light emission at low drive voltages.
Professor Tang is the current Kyoto Prize Laureate for Advanced Technology.
As part of the Kyoto Prize at Oxford 2021, he will deliver a lecture examining the evolution and future prospects of OLEDs, followed by opportunities for Q&A.
