Hun Students Explore the Science of OLED Lighting at Technology Company
As part of the Hun School’s emphasis on experiential education, Hun students recently visited a company that develops the technology of OLEDs, which lights computer screens, TVs, and smartphones all around us.
Fourteen Hun honors chemistry students visited Universal Display Corporation in Ewing, New Jersey, on November 16. The company, which was born in a Princeton University laboratory in 1994, is a world leader in the invention, research, development, and commercialization of Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLEDs).
The students toured the facility, learned how OLEDs work, and saw chemistry and engineering laboratories where the technology is developed and refined before it is sold to manufacturers. The students also visited a demonstration room where products that use OLED lighting were on display. They included Samsung phones and watches, IPhone X, Apple watches, and flat and 3D televisions and an interactive OLED mirror, which doubles as a mirror and a touchscreen.
The Hun School of Princeton is an independent, coeducational, private day and boarding college preparatory school. Student-centered, hands-on learning prepares students for the global community in which they will live and work.
