Apple Hires Senior OLED TV Researcher from LG Display

Apple has hired a senior researcher in organic light-emitting diode (OLED) display technology from LG, possibly signaling their renewed interest in the technology.

BrightWire, via MacRumors:

Apple has hired a new executive into its Display group – Dr. Jueng Jil Lee, a former research fellow at LG Display, who apparently was involved with printing technology research. Dr. Lee’s previous employee (before LGD) was Cambridge Display Technology, the P-OLED pioneer (now owned by Sumitomo).

OLED has numerous advantages over LCD, among them are: brighter colors with deeper blacks, wider viewing angles, faster response times and greater power efficiency. The technology can also be used to develop flexible screens, which Apple has shown an interest in, however it is not known if the company has plans to bring such technology to market. It could also have implications about Apple’s rumored television set!

While Apple has been known to be looking at OLED technology for years, cost and other limitations has as yet kept the technology from Apple’s products.
