SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - September 22, 2016) - The Society for Information Display (SID) announced today the designation of a new award to honor the outstanding contributions of young researchers to the advancements of active matrix addressed information displays. The Peter Brody Prize will be awarded to a young researcher under age 40 who has made outstanding contributions in innovating the design and enhancing the performance of active matrix addressed information displays.
The award is named after the late professor Dr. Peter Brody, who was the pioneer of active matrix thin film transistors for information displays.
Dr. Brody demonstrated the world's-first working CdSe TFT-EL and TFT-LCD panels in 1973 and 1974, respectively. He was the pioneer and great advocate for active matrix addressed information displays. He led a pilot line manufacturing TFT-EL panels at Westinghouse and commercial-scale manufacturing of TFT-LCD panels at Panelvision in 1980. He continued to develop low-cost TFT backplane technologies at Magnascreen and Advantech until the end of his life.
Dr. Brody was an SID Fellow and received the Karl Ferdinand Braun Prize from SID in 1987 for his outstanding technical achievement and contribution to information displays. He was also honored with the Rank Prize in optoelectronics (UK), the Eduard Rhein Prize (Germany), the IEEE Jun-Ichi Nishizawa Metal and thee NAE Charles Stark Draper Prize.
The Peter Brody Prize will recognize a young researcher, under the age of 40, for major contributions, which enhance the performance of active matrix addressed displays. It is the intention of the prize to recognize young researchers who have made 'major-impact' technical contributions to the developments of active matrix addressed displays in one or more of the following areas:
- thin film transistor devices
- active matrix addressing techniques
- active matrix device manufacturing
- active matrix display media
- active matrix display-enabling components
Award recipients have to be less than 40 years of age at the time of nomination; and nominees are not required to be a member of SID.
Winners of the Peter Brody Prize will receive a $2,000 stipend, made possible through a generous grant of $40,000 from Dr. Fang-Chen Luo. Dr. Luo worked with Dr. Brody at Westinghouse R&D Center demonstrating the first working TFT-EL panel in 1973 and a TFT-LC panel in 1974. He is donating the money to honor Dr. Brody, who was his mentor, as well as to recognize young engineers for their innovative contributions to active matrix addressed information displays. The grant will be used to endow the award in perpetuity.
The award joins the lineup of prestigious honors bestowed by SID to outstanding innovators in the field of information displays, including the Karl Ferdinand Braun Prize for outstanding technical achievement in or contribution to display technology; the Jan Rajchman Prize for outstanding scientific or technical achievement in or contribution to research on flat-panel displays; the Otto Schade Prize for outstanding scientific or technical achievement in or contribution to the advancement of the functional performance and/or image quality of information displays; and, the Slottow-Owaki Prize for outstanding contributions to personnel training in the field of information display.
The deadline for nominations for the 2017 awards is Oct. 15, 2016. For more information on any of the SID Honors and Awards, including how to submit nominations, please visit www.sid.org and click "Awards."

Technology vendors and analysts are eager to paint a rosy picture of how wonderful IoT is and why your deployment will be great with the use of their products and services. While it is easy to showcase successful IoT solutions, identifying IoT systems that missed the mark or failed can often provide more in the way of key lessons learned. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Peter Vanderminden, Principal Industry Analyst for IoT & Digital Supply Chain to Flatiron Strategies, will focus on how IoT de...

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate a...
