CAMPBELL, Calif., March 23, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The Society for Information Display (SID) announced the 2022 Honors and Awards Winners, presented to those who have achieved outstanding innovations and offered significant contributions to the display industry. The recipients all have made tremendous accomplishments that have furthered research, pushed the boundaries of discovery, and improved technology. The honorees will receive their award in conjunction with SID's annual Display Week, May 8-13, in San Jose, California.
"Great innovators tend to have many things in common," says Paul Drzaic, Chair of the SID Honors and Awards committee. "What we see in our award winners is a drive to succeed, a passion for discovery and exploring new opportunities, and a deep respect for their colleagues in the electronic display community. SID is pleased to recognize these achievements, and bring attention to our award winners within the display community and the wider world."
The following recipients are being honored for their excellence:
The Karl Ferdinand Braun Prize is awarded for outstanding technical achievement, which has also had substantial impact on the display industry. The Braun Prize is SID's most prestigious individual award, honoring those people who have pioneered the technologies underpinning commercial displays.
Wei Chen and John Zhong are winners of the Karl Ferdinand Braun Prize for their exceptional leadership and technical contributions in driving innovation in displays for the consumer electronics industry, especially computers, mobile phones, electronic tablets, and smart watches. As technologists, they contributed to numerous inventions that go into displays today. As leaders in a system company, they have transformed the status of electronic displays from a commodity component to one of the most expressive and value-added user-interface devices. Their profound impact goes beyond displays to computers, smartphones, electronic tablets, and smart watches. Additionally, Chen and Zhong have played a crucial role in driving applications of new display technology in high-volume consumer products.
The Jan Rajchman Prize is awarded for outstanding scientific or technical contributions to electronic display technology. This award is open to academic achievement, in addition to notable technology developments that are recognized as groundbreaking in their field.
Jin Jang is the recipient of the 2022 Jan Rajchman Prize for his many contributions to the advancement of novel thin-film transistor (TFT) technologies and pioneering application of TFTs in active-matrix OLED (AMOLED), AMLCD, microLED, and flexible displays. Some of his key technologies for TFTs include a giant grain, low-temperature, poly-Si TFT; self-organized, organic semiconductor TFT on hydrophilic surfaces; and bulk accumulation mode oxide TFTs used for manufacturing AMOLED displays on plastic substrates.
The David Sarnoff Industrial Achievement Prize is conferred for major impact on the business of the electronic display industry, honoring those people whose leadership has shaped the current industry.
SangDeog Yeo is the winner of the David Sarnoff Industrial Achievement Prize for his outstanding contributions to the development of large-scale commercialization technology for large OLED displays used in TV applications and for high-resolution LCD panels for mobile applications.
The Peter Brody Prize is awarded to researchers and engineers under the age of 40 who have made major technical or scientific contributions to electronic display technology.
Keisuke Ide is the recipient of the Peter Brody Prize for his pioneering research on defect analysis of amorphous oxide semiconductors (AOSs) and developments of novel active-matrix displays (AMDs) using indium gallium zinc oxide (IGZO).
This Slottow-Owaki Prize is awarded for outstanding contributions to the education and training of students and/or professionals in the field of electronic displays.
The Slottow–Owaki Prize winner Hiroyoshi Naito received this award for his contributions to the education of graduate and undergraduate students and research professionals in display material characterization and display device physics.
The Otto Schade Prize is awarded for outstanding scientific or technical achievement in the image quality of electronic displays. It recognizes vision scientists, human factor engineers, and engineers whose efforts have led to major improvements in the visual quality of electronic displays.
Taiichiro Kurita is the recipient of the Otto Schade Prize for his outstanding achievements in characterizing and dramatically improving the moving-image quality of active-matrix displays and video systems and enabling the introduction of ever-higher display resolution for flat-panel televisions.
The Lewis and Beatrice Winner Award is given for exceptional and sustained service to SID.
Sriram (Sri) Peruvemba is the recipient of the 2022 Lewis and Beatrice Winner Award for his service as chair of marketing for SID, his leadership of the Bay Area Chapter for SID, and other SID leadership roles, leading to substantial increases in SID membership and public engagement.
