LG taps quantum dots for its Super UHD TVs
Samsung Will Use Quantum Dots to Fight LG OLED Digital Trends
Jean-Luc Bredas is a Member of the International Academy of Quantum Molecular Science and the European Academy of Sciences and an Associate Member of the Royal Academy of Belgium. He is the recipient of the 1997 Francqui Prize, the 2000 Quinquennial Prize of the Belgian National Science Foundation, the 2001 Italgas Prize, the 2003 Descartes Prize of the European Union, the 2010 Charles H. Stone Award of the American Chemical Society, and the 2013 David Adler Award in Materials Physics of the American Physical Society. He is a Fellow of the American Chemical Society, American Physical Society, Optical Society of America, Royal Society of Chemistry, and Materials Research Society. He is an Honorary Professor of the Institute of Chemistry of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and holds Honorary degrees from Linköping University, Sweden, and Université Libre de Bruxelles. Since 2008, he serves as Editor for “Chemistry of Materials”, published by the American Chemical Society. Research in the Bredas group focuses on computational materials chemistry: computational methods are used as a tool to uncover the properties of novel advanced materials, understand their chemistry and physics, and derive an integrated understanding of the intrinsic molecular- and nano-scale processes in a variety of emerging applications (such as solar cells or low-power displays), especially in the fields of organic electronics, photonics, and information technology.

He has focused his research activity during his Ph.D and Post Doc on scanning probe microscopy studies of self-assembled structures. As soon as he started his independent lab he has exploited these tools beyond imaging to gain a quantitative insight into various physico-chemical properties of nanostructures. His research interest has then expanded to the bottom-up development of switchable surfaces and interfaces, to the multiscale study of electronic properties of supramolecularly engineered materials, to graphene chemistry and to the fabrication of supramolecular devices. He has pioneered the realization of optically switchable field-effect transistors which combine photochromic systems with (macro)molecular semiconductors.
