  • Dr. Yohan Kim

    R&D Engineer, EL-QLEDs Fraunhofer IAP

    Dr. Yohan Kim joined Fraunhofer IAP in 2014 where he is working on quantum dot material development, studying device physics and working on the fabrication and optimization of quantum dot light-emitting diodes (QLEDs). He has been working hard on the development of efficient and stable Cd-free EL-QLEDs in order to bring them in the display market.

    He received a master of engineering degree from the Department of Electronics and Electrical Engineering at Dankook University, Korea in 2012 while he was doing research on developing flexible and transparent QLEDs at Korea Electronics Technology Institute (KETI). While he was working on Fraunhofer IAP, he received his Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the Technical University of Berlin in 2018, with a dissertation on “Design of high performance InP-based QLEDs”.

  • Peter Palomaki, Ph.D.

    CTO and Acting CEO QLEDCures

    Peter Palomaki is the CTO and Acting CEO of QLEDCures, an NSF-funded startup commercializing quantum dot LEDs for the photomedical field. Peter's leverages his deep technical background in quantum dot and optical materials to adopt display materials to the emerging market of photomedicine.

Exploring Updates in QLED Technology

  1. Photomedical Applications for QLED Technology

    Peter Palomaki, Ph.D. | CTO and Acting CEO of QLEDCures

    Homogeneous, flexible light sources with pure, deep red color and sufficiently high power densities are being sought after for easily-adopted photomedical treatments. These treatments have not been widely adopted using lasers or LED arrays due to the requirements of an in-office visit and high cost of equipment. Quantum dot light emitting diodes (QLEDs) have outstanding wavelength tunability, ideal color purity, high power density, and the ability to create unique form factors that will meet the pressing needs of the photomedical market. QLEDCures is partnering with University of Central Florida to develop QLED devices to address unmet device needs for the treatment of various medical conditions.

    • Photomedical industry needs red and IR light sources with high power densities and unique form factors
    • Flexible, homogeneous QLED emitters that meet the required optical performance that will enable new treatment options
    • QLEDCures is developing technology specifically suitable for photomedical applications and has demonstrated efficacy in-vitro 
  2. Efficient and Stable Cd-Free EL-QLEDs for Display

    Dr. Yohan Kim | R&D Engineer, EL-QLEDs of Fraunhofer IAP

    This session will take a closer look at device physics and working on the fabrication and optimization of quantum dot light-emitting diodes (QLEDs). He has been working hard on the development of efficient and stable Cd-free EL-QLEDs in order to bring them in the display market.

  3. Round Table Discussion - Q & A

    Our workshop presenters will open up the floor for any additional questions or related topics of discussion. This collaborative panel discussion will allow both the presenters and participants to explore related concepts, share first-hand experiences, and brainstorm potential solutions for the future.
