The Luminescence and Display Materials Division Outstanding Achievement Award was established in 2002 to encourage excellence in luminescence and display materials research and outstanding technical contributions to the field. For the purposes of this award, luminescence and display materials science is defined as that area of knowledge that encompasses the physics, chemistry, and materials technology of luminescence and display materials and devices.
Nomination Deadline: January 1, even years
Presented: Fall meeting, even years
The recipient will have made significant technical contributions to the field of luminescence and display materials science. Only currently active ECS members may be considered for the award. For the purposes of this Award, “currently active” is to be measured by membership in ECS and by having been an author or co-author of more than one paper published in ECS journals and/or having presented more than one full paper at an ECS meeting within the previous five years.
The award consists of a scroll, and a US $1,000 prize. The recipient is required to attend the Society meeting to receive the award and give a lecture to the LDM Division. The recipient may receive financial assistance toward travel expenses to facilitate meeting attendance. In the event that the award is made jointly to no more than two co-recipients, the award to each of the co-recipients will comprise an appropriately worded scroll and a check for an amount to be decided by the LDM Division Executive Committee, but not to exceed US $1,000.
