Novaled Team Nominated fo Prestigious Deutscher Zukunftspreis Prize

Aug 30, 2011 Electroiq has reported that OLED maker Novaled AG's founders Prof. Karl Leo (Technical University of Dresden and Fraunhofer IPMS Dresden), Dr. Jan Blochwitz-Nimoth (Novaled AG) and Dr. Martin Pfeiffer (now at Heliatek GmbH) have been nominated for the Deutscher Zukunftspreis, the Federal President's Award for Innovation and Technology.

Deutscher Zukunftspreis  is an annual prize honoring teams of creative people that realize breakthroughs in science and commercialize the results. Every year, the jury of the German Future Prize nominates three teams that, based on their excellent research, have successfully introduced new products to the market. The award will be presented by the German Federal President Christian Wulff on December 14 in Berlin. Information is available at

Novaled's team developed organic electronics, begining at the Technical University Dresden, with organic light emitting diode (OLED) doping technologies that reduced energy consumption. The more efficient OLED products are used for flat panel displays, low-power lighting and efficient and flexible solar cells. Novaled AG and Heliatek GmbH, which makes organic solar cell products, are part of Saxony's organic electronics development cluster.

Second team nominated for the prize include  Dr. Klaus-Dieter Rasch (AZUR SPACE Solar Power GmbH), Hansjörg Lerchenmüller (Soitec), and Dr. Andreas Bett (Fraunhofer ISE). The third nominated team works on electronic assistance for motorists interacting with the environment and other people, called "6D Vision."
