Jaesang Lee, Electrical Engineering PhD Student, demonstrates use of blue PHOLEDs in the EECS Building.

The blue PHOLEDs were developed in EECS Professor Stephen Forrest's lab groups and are for use in cell phones, tablets, and other electronics. The LEDs' lifetime has been enhanced by a factor of ten, allowing for more efficient use.
