HOPEWELL JUNCTION, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--eMagin Corporation, or the Company, (NYSE American: EMAN), a leader in the development, design and manufacture of Active Matrix OLED microdisplays for high resolution imaging products, today announced that Dr. Amal Ghosh, Chief Technology Officer and Senior Vice President, received the 2019 Karl Ferdinand Braun Prize awarded annually by the Society of Information Display (“SID”). This award is given to an individual for outstanding technical achievement in and contribution to display technology.
Dr. Ghosh has notable achievements and contributions in OLED microdisplay technology including the invention and development of key processes for thin‐film encapsulation of high‐resolution OLED microdisplay devices; recognizing that white OLED with color filters was the most effective and efficient route to production; developing a low‐temperature color‐filter process for patterning color filters directly on top of OLED devices; and the development of a process to obtain a tapered‐anode structure for proper OLED functioning. Ghosh was also instrumental in developing direct‐patterning technology for OLED microdisplays, which has led to the fabrication of the world’s highest luminance and highest resolution full color microdisplays.
Dr. Ghosh was born in Pune, India and received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees from Pune University. He is a 1985 graduate of MIT with a Ph.D. in physics.
“Amal’s contributions to both eMagin and the display industry over his 25-year career have been instrumental in the advancement of both microdisplays and OLED technology. As we continue to pursue commercialization for OLED microdisplays in industrial and consumer applications, I fully believe that with Amal’s support, eMagin will continue to be the leader in high-resolution, high-brightness, OLED-on-silicon microdisplays,” said Andrew G. Sculley, CEO. “We at eMagin are proud that Amal has received the recognition he deserves.”
