Universal Display Corporation Wins 'Distinguished Poster Paper' Award at 2008 SID Conference.

Company honored for advances in dual infrared and visible-color emission OLEDs

EWING, N.J. -- Universal Display Corporation (NASDAQ:PANL), an innovator behind today's and tomorrow's displays and lighting products through its Universal PHOLED[TM] phosphorescent OLED technology, today announced that the Company has been awarded the 'Distinguished Poster Paper' award at the 2008 Society for Information Display Conference, Symposium and Exhibition, being held this week at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles, CA. Senior Scientist Dr. Jason Brooks is being honored for his presentation, titled "A Near-Infrared Phosphorescent OLED for Day/Night Display," which he will deliver today at 4:00 P.M. PT in Exhibit Hall B.

"Universal Display congratulates Dr. Jason Brooks and the rest of the team who contributed to the advances recognized by this award," said Steven V. Abramson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Universal Display. "The past year has brought a number of advancements in the design, performance and versatility of our PHOLED technology for the commercial and military markets. This award recognizes the hard work of everyone involved, as Universal Display, Professors Mark Thompson and Steve Forrest, and their research teams, continue to achieve new milestones and advances in our OLED technologies."

Dr. Brooks' poster details advances in flexible phosphorescent OLED displays that offer both day and nighttime functionality. The dual display utilizes visible-color emission for daytime use and infrared emission for covert night vision applications. By unifying what would otherwise be two devices, the display design is especially useful for soldiers operating in battlefield conditions.

The Program Committee of SID 2008 decides the winners of the Distinguished Contributed Paper awards, recognizing some of the most significant technical advances represented in this Symposium. Within three categories are eleven Distinguished Contributed Papers, one Distinguished Poster Paper, and three Distinguished Student Papers. The winners are chosen by the Program Committee from all the contributed papers based on the originality and novelty of the work, the significance of the results, and the clarity and quality of the written summary in the technical digest.
