SPIE: Flexible OLEDs

Screenshot of the press release "New findings move flexible lighting technology toward commercial feasibility" on the SPIE website.Between July and November of 2015, I acted as a public relations contractor for SPIE, the International Society for Optics and Photonics. My task was to review research articles published in SPIE’s eleven peer-reviewed scientific journals and identify the ones with potential mainstream appeal as science news items.

Then I produced a concise yet accurate summary of the article, explaining the research findings to a nonscientific audience. My work formed the basis for SPIE press releases disseminated to science news channels.

In this case, I wrote a summary of “Flexible organic light-emitting diodes for solid-state lighting,” published in the July 21, 2015 issue of the Journal of Photonics for Energy.

The final press release disseminated by SPIE can be seen here. The press release was picked up by the websites of Solid State Technology.
