EE Prof. Seunghyup Yoo, wins the Merck Award at the 2021 International Meeting on Information Display (IMID 2021)
Professor Seunghyup Yoo of our EE Faculty was honored with the Merck Award at the International Meeting on Information Display (IMID) 2021 held at COEX, Seoul from August 25 to 27.
The Merck Awards have been given at IMID hosted by the Korean Information Display Society (KIDS) since 2004, the 100th anniversary of Merck’s liquid crystal research. To encourage innovative and excellent research and development in the display field, this award has been given to selected researchers with outstanding achievements in display technology.
Professor Seunghyup Yoo has achieved excellent research results with academic depth and industrial impact in the fields of displays and lighting devices based on organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) as well as flexible and wearable electronics. In particular, he conducted systematic research to achieve the ultimate efficiency of OLEDs, which includes the result such as bringing the efficiency of OLED to the level of state-of-the-art inorganic LEDs. Recently, he is pioneering a new field in which wearable IT, optical technology, and medical technology are converged to expand the application fields of OLEDs and organic electronic devices to healthcare. He has also been contributing to the international societies such as the Korea Information Display Society (KIDS) and the Optical Society of America (OSA) for advance and spread of display technologies.
Meanwhile, Merck held an online meeting called Merck Science Connect in line with IMID 2021, and “The power of displaying, as an interface” can be viewed at the following link, in which Professor Seunghyup Yoo participated as a panel.
