Last week, the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc. honored Doris Johns Cherry Professor Ching Tang with the 2007 Daniel E. Noble Award for his work in developing Organic light-emitting diodes, OLED’s, at the Lasers & Electro-Optics Society Annual Meeting in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.

Tang won the award because his OLED technology, responsible for creating a billion-dollar industry, provides better picture and is more energy efficient than the best LCD screens that are currently available.

Tang has also developed other technologies in the field of OLED screens and their manufacture, including innovative, new materials and better production methods.

Tang has more than 70 patents for his work and has won numerous awards, including the 2000 Eastman Innovation Award from Eastman Kodak and the 2001 Jan Rajchman Prize from the Society for Information Display.

Additionally, Tang’s work in photovoltaic technology may enable the production of more efficient solar panels. He worked on developing the first solar cells in the 1970s when he was at Kodak Research Laboratories.

Fleming is a member of the class of 2010.



‘The Crucible’ is a theatrical romp

There is blood, dirt and grime, and behind the scenes, there is blood, sweat and tears poured into this production that you can feel palpably on stage.

To eat, or not to eat, that is the question

Professors of the chemical engineering department are now offering a fun little opportunity for all UR students looking to complete their History cluster. For no less than 40 hours a week, you have the privilege of LARPing as a feudal serf.

“Destroyed by mouth sounds:” a cappella demolition

His basic game plan: attract attention with a high D and wrist flourish to distract passerby, while the demolition team’s other members bulldoze campus property with equipment rescued from that one Elmwood Avenue construction site.
